The economically directed city politics in Landskrona is focused on apartment and house strategies. In this study it is interpreted as policies and politics for gentrification. Officially the strategies is mentioned city development. The purpose is mainly to stop people with social welfare to move to the city. The city administration want a more economically prosperous city. Strategies are written in official documents. In gentrification theory the mechanism in progress is mentioned commodification of space. The language is influenced by economic words and notions that are common in the discourse of city politics. The ideology behind the gentrification strategies is refered to as economism, heavily influenced by neoliberalism. In analyzing the language as a form of Three-Dimensional View of power a different kind of perspective is revealed. The method used is ideology criticism. It connects the question of gentrification with focus on different categories of people, power and the reality under the surface. The analyze focuses mainly on city development policies, not so much the results of the strategies. The definition and view of the city is from a top-down perspective and the strategies used are interpreted as the revanchist city in progress. (Less)
