This chapter argues for a grounded approach for researching gentrification that understands local political contexts and actually existing neoliberalisms, in different cities/regions/countries, that give rise to urban policies promoting gentrification. Comparing Sulukule and Tarlabasi in central Istanbul, neighbourhoods that have been transformed based on the same renewal law, it shows how even in two seemingly similar cases within the same city, the making of, and resistance to, gentrification can take quite different forms.

Keywords:   actually existing neoliberalism, Istanbul, Turkey, renewal law, resistance to gentrification
