Resilience in the post-welfare inner city

Policy Press

This chapter analyzes similarities and differences in voluntary sector resilience (spatial and social) across the 100 organizations embedded within 4 place-types and 3 global city-regions. As a starting point, three prevailing strategies of spatial resilience are proposed. These strategies built on and somewhat reworked literatures on (1) the barriers to gentrification and, more specifically, (2) the geographies of anti-displacement. There is little interest here in overt residential resistance to gentrification but rather the active outflanking and persistent outlasting of gentrification via the production of institutionalized resilience.
