AccueilComparing property markets on an international scale

*  *  *

Publié le jeudi 15 février 2018 par João Fernandes

Résumé

While many scholars compare property markets from the same urban area or compare the way these markets distinguish urban areas within a given country, very few propose an international comparison. And yet, this is a main scientific issue. Such comparisons would provide a new angle for studying metropolitan development as well as its internal trends relating to inequality and gentrification.

Presentation and argument

The workshop is supported by the Urban Futures Labex of the University Paris-Est and it continues to develop the conceptual framework that was discussed during the day-long seminar entitled “Representing property markets” held at the University Paris 7 Diderot in July 2017.

While many scholars compare property markets from the same urban area or compare the way these markets distinguish urban areas within a given country, very few propose an international comparison.

And yet, this is a main scientific issue. Such comparisons would provide a new angle for studying metropolitan development as well as its internal trends relating to inequality and gentrification.

This one-day seminar will provide a space to undertake such reflection while highlighting the methodological and theoretical stakes related to international comparability.
