Resilience in the post-welfare inner city

This chapter considers matters of service hub resilience within the four areas with mixed levels of gentrification and upgrading: the London boroughs of Islington, Lambeth and Southwark, and the Darlinghurst/Kings Cross area in Sydney. All featured medium gentrification index scores, medium levels of voluntary sector organizations per capita, medium levels of non-white populations, and medium criminalization index scores. It was found that gentrification was more mixed than the ‘established gentrified’ neighborhoods, creating hodge-podge geographies of resilience and displacement, with gentrification counterposed with, and sometimes threatening, conspicuous areas of poverty and, in the case of London, large-scale council estates.

Keywords:   immobility, displacement, social housing, gentrification
