English abstract
This study engages with the effects of gentrification -which is the transformation of working-class neighbourhoods for middle- and/or upper-class use- on Turkish immigrants residing in a low-income neighbourhood in Berlin. It shows that European Union (EU)-supported urban policies in the German capital have accelerated and assisted the gentrification of neighbourhoods that have previously been marked as ‘Turkish’ or ‘Muslim ghettos’. By means of a case study about the Neukölln district it is discussed how the classification of immigrant-heavy areas as ‘problematic’, on the one hand, and Berlin’s marketing as creative and multicultural world city, on the other, have driven local urban policies that have facilitated and accelerated the gentrification of the capital’s inner city. It will be argued that gentrification, rather than ameliorating the life quality of Turkish and other immigrants in the quarter, has added other problems such as rent pressure and loss of the local infrastructure.
