This chapter examines the role of gender mainstreaming in the restructuring of large housing estates in Sweden, Italy, and Germany. It provides a brief explanation of gender terminology and its adoption in urban planning and governance, and evaluates the compatibility of gender mainstreaming and Patsy Healey's concept of collaborative planning. The chapter discusses the different structural frameworks for the implementation of gender mainstreaming in urban and large-housing-estate development, and the gender sensitivity (or blindness) of these developments.

Keywords:   gender mainstreaming, housing estate, housing restructuring, Sweden, Italy, Germany, urban planning, Patsy Healey, collaborative planning
