This chapter examines the issue of social mix in post-war housing estates in Europe. It explains that social mix is a crucial concept in present-day urban-restructuring policies and that a socially mixed neighbourhood could create better opportunities for the people living there. The chapter addresses questions about the relationship between the (physical) housing mix and social opportunities, and the social mix and social opportunities. It also discusses populist and political debate that triggers actions and ideas with regard to the association between housing and social mix and social perspectives in several European countries.

Keywords:   social mix, post-war housing, housing estates, Europe, urban restructuring, housing mix, social opportunities
