This chapter focuses on the actual experience of social mix in gentrifying urban neighbourhoods in the Netherlands. It begins by outlining the results of quantitative work that deals with the notion of homogeneous-heterogeneous neighbourhoods by assessing the strengths and weaknesses of social capital and the relevance of neighbourhood ties. The chapter then draws on qualitative research on social mixing in one neighbourhood. The chapter contends that social interaction and social mixing are not envisaged in Dutch policy prescriptions.
