Landscape of Discontent

Chapter 4 looks at what happens when environmentalism --and urban sustainability in particular-- becomes part of a language of power (and logic for policy) in major global city such as Paris. I show how urban greening has been incorporated as strategy of inter-urban completion between global cities more broadly, and I shed light on the fact that sustainable urbanism is leading to the dislocation and gentrification of immigrant communities in and around Paris.

Keywords:   Paris, sustainable urban design, green architecture, urban nature, sustainable city, contested city, green gentrification, immigration in Europe, social movements, political ecology
