Policy Press

This chapters outlines the methodological approach to the multi-site, comparative project at hand. The chapter is divided into three sections: (1) the sample frame for the three global city-regions, the ten inner-city areas and the 100 voluntary sector organizations, referencing global cities theory; (2) an operationalization of resilience and the threats to it, in the form of proxies and metrics of social and spatial resilience to the displacing logics of gentrification in the uneven post-welfare city; and (3) an exposition on the comparative methods, referencing the burgeoning literature on comparative urbanism and how it may inform (comparative) resilience among the voluntary sector.

Keywords:   comparative methods, displacement, gentrification, global cities
