European cities have been historically considered as an urban model strongly based on a compromises between competitiveness and social cohesion.
Nevertheless, in the last two decades, this traditional model has significantly weakened, as polarization, growing vulnerability of the middle class, collapse of the public housing sector and gentrification have occurred across urban Europe.
In this seminar, based on the Territorio issue “Socio-spatial transformation in EU cities: gentrification, polarization, conflicts” (73/2015, five articles are presented, each dealing in a different way with the impact of these trends on a larger European city.
