Impacts of urban programmes in European cities: the role of the state in the production of urban inequality
Regeneration programmes and mixing policies are recurrently deployed as a means to tackle urban deprivation and reduce social inequalities on both sides of the Atlantic, albeit without sound evidence and often resulting in gentrification, social polarisation, or dispersal towards peripheral areas. A set of research initiated in the mid-2000 explore the role of the State as producer of urban inequalities and whether regeneration and housing tenure diversification programmes are a device for alleviating deprivation in terms of increasing socio-economic opportunities (production) and access to resources (consumption). The research seeks to empirically contribute to the wider theoretical and political debate on mixed communities and area‐based programmes from a redistributive perspective and within a multi‐scalar thinking. The research has started with the case of Greater London (tenure--mixing programmes), Barcelona (PERIs renewal programmes), and Madrid Metropolitan Area (renewal programme since the 1980s), and it is expanding within the wider European panorama.
