Neoliberal urbanization: socio-spatial disparities of the urban periphery : the case of Ankara, Turkey

Abstract : This research aims at revealing the causal relationships of neoliberal urbanization and socio-spatial disparities of urban peripheries by exemplifying two lower income neighborhoods. The dwellers of the Kusunlar neighborhood, a social housing neighborhood situated at the urban periphery of Ankara, are mostly the former informal settlement dwellers and they represent the lower strata of the society. The dwellers of the Ben-Gurion-Ring neighborhood, a social housing neighborhood situated at the urban periphery of Frankfurt am Main, are mostly constituted by people with immigration background. Although the two cases share several similarities such as being situated at the urban periphery, being areas where poverty is concentrated, suffering from physical isolation, and having bad reputations, they still represent two different development contexts. Therefore, they are neither compared nor contrasted. They are rather explained and described in terms of their context-specific legal-economic and socio-spatial dimensions. Without overlooking the discourse of global neoliberalization, their common outcomes are combined as a framework to draw policy-oriented conclusions.
