Interpreting the Theoretical and Practical Implications of the Real Estate Turn

(p.212) Conclusion
Cities for Profit

Gavin Shatkin

Cornell University Press

This chapter concludes by assessing the implications of the analysis in the preceding chapters for contemporary urban theory and urban planning and policy practice. The analysis focuses on four common themes that emerge across the case studies: the political challenges that states face in managing the land value increment; the contestations that emerge around state efforts to destabilize non-state and non-freehold claims to land; the state strategies that emerge to delegitimize the claims and complaints of those dispossessed through urban real estate megaproject development; and the dynamics of economic and social exclusion that emerge with urban real estate megaproject development.

Keywords:   Urban theory, Dispossession, Dualism, Social exclusion
