International efforts has indicated agents of gentrification to not only be locally embedded as policies travel and finance has become a dominant force in urban development. The state involvement in gentrification processes have however remained intertwined with an Anglo-American context. Much less attention have been paid to state involvement in gentrification processes in the context of welfare-societies.
The main concern of this thesis is to address how urban planning in a welfare-state is contributing to processes of gentrification. 30 years of planning to re-erect Copenhagen is assessed and discussed from planning documents and interviews. Results confirm the state to play a central role in gentrification processes of a welfare-society. Further, contemporary state involvement in looming gentrification processes in the neighbourhood of Nordvest is brought into a discussion of how planning can accommodate an urban development to ensure housing affordability as a token of a just city.
