Displacement from a place of home can have multiple manifestations and engender different practices of resistance. Ferreri draws on academic debates and activist publications to offer a critical synthesis of recent resisting practices that contest and counter residential displacement in northern and southern European cities. The chapter focuses on forms of organised place occupations that have emerged in response to the global financial crisis and subsequent austerity programmes to contest new processes of gentrification, neoliberal restructuring, and speculative real estate development. Selected examples from England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, and Spain reveal shared repertoires of action and the potential for tactical convergences towards a place-based and intersectional politics of radical emplacement.

Abstract

Displacement from a place of home can have multiple manifestations and engender different practices of resistance. Ferreri draws on academic debates and activist publications to offer a critical synthesis of recent resisting practices that contest and counter residential displacement in northern and southern European cities. The chapter focuses on forms of organised place occupations that have emerged in response to the global financial crisis and subsequent austerity programmes to contest new processes of gentrification, neoliberal restructuring, and speculative real estate development. Selected examples from England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, and Spain reveal shared repertoires of action and the potential for tactical convergences towards a place-based and intersectional politics of radical emplacement.
