Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography Workshop on Gated and Guarded Housing in Eastern Europe
Leipzig, December 5-6, 2008
Considering the variety of issues that can be discussed with regard to gated and guarded housing in Eastern Europe, the organizers would like to suggest a range of questions that this workshop wants to address: What are the specific driving forces of gated and guarded housing in Eastern Europe? Which historic patterns of housing and security during socialism may be regarded as predecessors for this development? How does the term-gated community apply to the gated and guarded housing complexes in post-socialist urban areas? Who is living behind the gates and why? What are the motives and strategies of developers to build such complexes? Is gated and guarded
housing a symbol for a new form of urban governance in post-socialist cities? How are Social Science News July 2008 gated and guarded housing complexes perceived by the public? What kind of discourses can be found? How can gated and guarded housing complexes in Eastern Europe be methodologically and conceptually understood?
One aim of organising this workshop is to create a platform that should help to exchange ideas, approaches and results on gated and guarded housing in Eastern Europe. Furthermore, this workshop attempts to be a starting point for a research network on gated and guarded housing and privatisation of residential developments in Eastern Europe.
