The primary objective of this special issue is to engage in comparative analyses with a focus on policy issues. The eleven papers show how, in cities and countries around the world, gentrification has become an active part of public policy based on a “blueprint” that is contextually adjusted. During the most recent phase, the process has become fully incorporated into public policy. The redevelopment of London’s Docklands provided the ideal typical case. There is a new relationship between gentrification, globalisation, neo-liberalism and the changing role of the state
