Social Housing and Urban Renewal

De (autor):

This book offers a cross-national perspective on contemporary urban renewal in relation to
social rental housing. Social housing estates - as developed either by governments (public
housing) or not-for-profit agencies - became a prominent feature of the 20th century urban
landscape in Northern European cities, but also in North America and Australia. Many
estates were built as part of earlier urban renewal, 'slum clearance' programs especially in
the post-World War 2 heyday of the Keynesian welfare state. During the last three decades,
however, Western governments have launched high-profile 'new urban renewal' programs
whose aim has been to change the image and status of social housing estates away from
being zones of concentrated poverty, crime and other social problems. This latest phase
of urban renewal - often called 'regeneration' - has involved widespread demolition of
social housing estates and their replacement with mixed-tenure housing developments in
which poverty deconcentration, reduced territorial stigmatization, and social mixing of poor
tenants and wealthy homeowners are explicit policy goals.



Academic critical urbanists, as well as housing activists, have however queried this dominant
policy narrative regarding contemporary urban renewal, preferring instead to regard it as
a key part of neoliberal urban restructuring and state-led gentrification which generate new
socio-spatial inequalities and insecurities through displacement and exclusion processes. This
book examines this debate through original, in-depth case study research on the processes and
impacts of urban renewal on social housing in European, U.S. and Australian cities. The book
also looks beyond the Western urban heartlands of social housing to consider how renewal is
occurring, and with what effects, in countries with historically limited social housing sectors such
as Japan, Chile, Turkey and South Africa.
