Financialisation of the Built Environment in Stockholm and Copenhagen

Research output: Working paper


This paper investigates financialisation of built environments in Stockholm
and Copenhagen, especially within the sphere of housing. It presents empirical
analyses of processes of financialisation of built environments in the two cities, and how these processes relate to urban politics and governance. The case studies include analyses of how financialisation of built environments and associated shifts in urban politics have impacted on the social geographies of these two capital cities. The Stockholm and Copenhagen cases are presented as individual case studies. A comparative analysis including broader conclusions from these studies and a related case study (of Ankara, in a separate working paper) will be the subject of a sequel working paper.
