Abstract (Swedish)
Baserat på begreppet gentrifiering och dess konsekvenser denna avhandling granskar fallet med stadsförnyelse av Bijlmermeer. Beläget i Amsterdam sydöstra (Nederländerna) dominerades området av social boende. Denna avhandling genom en kvalitativ metod presenterar inte bara ny kunskap om förnyelse av området, utan också konsekvenserna av densamma i den intilliggande bostadsområden, Holendrecht och Venserpolder. I avhandlingen kopplas förnyelsen med gentrifiering, förflyttning och den nyliberala staden. Bevis visar att det finns tecken som kan relateras till gentrifiering och att förnyelsen sprider sin ursprungliga sociala problem till de dåliga planerade kvarteren Venserpolder och Holendrecht.
Abstract
Based on the concept of gentrification and its consequences this thesis audits the case of the urban renewal of Bijlmermeer. Situated in Amsterdam South-East (Netherlands) it was pre-dominantly a social housing neighbourhood. This thesis through a qualitative approach presents new knowledge on the renewal of the area but also the consequences of the same in the adjacent neighbourhoods; Holendrecht and Venserpolder. The thesis attempts to link the intentions of the renewal to concepts on gentrification, displacement and the nature of the neo-liberal city. Evidence shows that there are signs that can be related to gentrification and that the renewal is spreading its original social problem to the badly planned neighbourhoods of Venserpolder... (More)
