(p.83) Five Responses to displacement via market forces more generally
Changing Communities

Policy Press

This chapter focuses upon community responses to displacement as a result of much less evident causes, high lighting the underlying operations of market forces. Marketisation processes have been intensifying competition for dwindling supplies of genuinely affordable housing, for instance, leading to processes of social cleansing. Tensions within and between communities have been exacerbated as a result. But there have also been examples of solidarity in face of threats of displacement via market forces, as the chapter illustrates, concluding by reflecting upon some of the potential implications for the development of public policies.
