Offering a new theoretical framework for understanding gentrification and displacement, this timely Research Agenda focuses on resistance as the central research area in this subject field.

Arguing that the future of gentrification research should focus on accomplishing the end of gentrification, chapters provide practical organizing and policy strategies using international case studies which are rooted in community-based research.

Encouraging researchers to find inspiration in new methods, sites and questions for exploring resistance, this Research Agenda seeks to empower communities and cities to reclaim urban life and city space for people by examining key issues such as housing insecurity and lived reality versus policy and practice.

Graduate students and researchers of geography, urban planning and urban sociology will find the use of case studies informative and thought-provoking. The suggested practical strategies will also be beneficial for urban planners and policymakers to fight displacement and slow gentrification.
Critical Acclaim
‘This remarkable and eminently readable Research Agenda brings into view pragmatic and diverse strategies for stemming gentrification. In emphasizing little-understood frontiers of gentrification activism, including radical forms of counter-cartography, the queering of housing politics, and state-mandated rent regulation and affordable housing, this book is an invaluable—and hopeful—contribution to global gentrification scholarship.’
– Malini Ranganathan, American University, Washington DC, US

‘Recognising gentrification is ultimately a process that displaces the poor and marginal. This Research Agenda argues that it is not enough to simply diagnose the geographies of gentrification, but that we need to prescribe solutions. Showing that grounded knowledge of gentrification’s intersection with class, race and sexuality can help inform strategies of resistance, this is an internationally-relevant book which flags exciting new directions in gentrification scholarship and activism.’
– Philip Hubbard, King's College, London, UK
