Super-Gentrification and Metropolitan Habitus: A Critique of Recent Concepts in British Gentrification Research

Published Online: 31 Dec 2010
Page range: 447 - 457

Abstract

Abstract

The paper discusses the two theoretical concepts super-gentrification and metropolitan habitus established by British gentrification research. Both concepts are more or less unknown in German urban geography. Super-gentrification is looking at the gentrification of already gentrified urban neighbourhoods. Metropolitan habitus explains the affinity of specific social groups for very specific neighbourhoods in big cities. The paper starts with criticising both concepts for their missing explanation of influences of the qualities of urban space on habitus and super-gentrification. Secondly, the paper introduces the concept of residential capital, be understood as inclusion of spatial qualities in social practices. In doing so, the theoretical gap of metropolitan habitus and super-gentrification can be bridged. In conclusion, the paper identifies some research questions for German urban geography that might be answered with the help of metropolitan habitus, super-gentrification and embedded residential capital.

Three Decades of Area-Based Policy in France: The politique de la ville

Published Online: 31 Dec 2010
Page range: 459 - 470

Abstract

Abstract

Since the 1970s, measures have been taken in France to fight a concentration of social and town planning problems by subsidizing certain town quarters in a specific way. The article argues that social problems are eventually being treated as problems of certain quarters. The historical background of the urban development in French suburbs will be described as well as the objectives and measures of the politique de la ville. The massive riots of 2005 in the suburbs have led to a basic criticism of the space-oriented approach of the politique de la ville. Against this background, it will finally be discussed if and, where applicable, in which way the politique de la ville has undergone a basic reorientation in the last few years.

Regional Educational Disparities and Employment Development

Published Online: 31 Dec 2010
Page range: 471 - 481

Abstract

Abstract

Education plays a major role for an economy’s growth in economic analysis and theory. However, international studies about the relation between education and economic growth lack valid and comparable data. In studies about regional development, education has received only limited attention. This study analyses the relation between education and employment growth in Germany, and compares various education variables. A regression across 97 German planning regions reveals that the development of several education variables, the capital stock and the working age population demonstrate highly significant coefficients for explaining the development of employment. In particular, a human capital index that includes formal qualification levels of all employees makes a strong explanatory contribution. Furthermore, the study reveals that regional educational disparities increase significantly over time and therefore contribute to a divergent employment development.

Beautiful Cities by Great Plans?—Building Culture and Integrated Urban Development Planning

Published Online: 31 Dec 2010
Page range: 483 - 497

Abstract

Abstract

In recent years building culture has become an issue of increasing interest in urban development policy in Germany. The deficiencies in urban design quality are in the focus of discussion. At the same time there is a discourse on the changed framework and characteristics of urban development planning. This article gives an introduction to current integrated urban development plans of the 20 major cities in Germany and analyses them with regard to statements and objectives about urban design. Finally the two case studies of Cologne and Munich illustrate the different treatment of the topic building culture in urban development planning.

Large-Scale Cross-Border Metropolitan Regions

Published Online: 31 Dec 2010
Page range: 499 - 513

Abstract

Abstract

A federal pilot project will explore the role played by economically strong border regions in interaction with European metropolitan and urban regions. Jointly with partners from the Maas-Rhine Euroregion, (SaarLorLux+) Euroregion, Trinational Upper Rhine metropolitan area and Lake Constance region, the regional policy of the federal government is aimed at establishing the particular importance of cross-border metropolitan areas for growth and innovation, as well as for the European target of territorial cohesion, within regional policy discussions in Germany and Europe. Testing the strategic approach of “supra-regional partnerships” in a cross-border context, is one significant aspect. The interests of the partners involved in the project are furthermore focussed on the regions themselves. This means, the project is dedicated to promote a coherent regional development, as well as effective cooperation structures across national borders. The project finally pursues the creation of an initiative in the form of an open alliance of cross-border metropolitan regions, in order to more effectively represent the interests of border regions on a national and European level. The article explores the genesis, objectives and approach of this pilot project against the background provided by current debates on sustainable spatial development in Germany and Europe.
