However, as the role of gentrification in urban neighbourhoods is vital and essential, the consequences are also significant. The most significant consequence is displacement; while the research focus is not to deal with this issue. The focus of the research is to discover gentrification process in urban neighbourhoods, proof its existence and create a comprehensive approach to deal with the process. This approach provides a tool for decision makers first; to expect possible gentrification location, second; to deal with gentrification in already gentrified neighbourhoods and third; to maximize gentrification positive consequences and minimize its negative ones. ... mehr
