This paper examines the political production of territorial stigmatization in Denmark through the example of prestige developments in Copenhagen’s West End built during the golden days of the welfare state. It shows how the processes of spatial concentration of dispossessed households and the defamation of their neighbourhoods are closely linked to the institutionalization of a dualized and asymmetrical housing market and a dualizing urban policy which have converged to privilege private ownership at the cost of nonprofit housing for the past fifty years
