This chapter examines the policies causing the gentrification of Abu Dhabi’s city centre which are causing displacement of segments of the population. It is argued that although there are stark differences between the planning cultures of Abu Dhabi and those of cities in Western Europe or North America, there are similarities in how the ‘spatial fix’ is administered.

Keywords:   planning cultures, displacement, Abu Dhabi, disciplining downtown, upgrading
