Over the past few years, a series of ‘urban transformation proj¬ects’ has been radically changing the face of the city of Istan¬bul. In line with the political project begun in the early 1980s, aimed at reintroducing the old capital of the Ottoman Empire onto the international scene and transforming it into a global city, the hub of a network of financial services and international tourism, today radical interventions have been made in the old neighbourhoods of Gecekondu and peripheral enclaves in the city centre, provoking the removal and further marginalization of large parts of the population. The reaction of the individual inhabitants has joined with the activism of neighbourhood as¬sociations and the interests of professional groups, and become translated into many forms of opposition to the projects and the politicisation, though controversial, of these urban protests.


Keywords: Urban transformation projects; gentrification; urban protest movements.
