Urban socio-spatial transformations

The social production of space is undergoing constant change. Processes like city development, gentrification, migration or digitalization always include a spatial dimension that becomes visible in different ways. At the same time, new inequalities are being produced and questions of availability, accessibility and affordability of urban infrastructures have to be posed and analyzed critically.

Based on a relational understanding of space, which also entails a spatial understanding in the sense of a multi-level system, current research on social participation, housing market change processes as well as social innovation is taking place at the USLL.
