Downtown districts, formerly occupied by the working classes, are gradually being invested by a middle class with a strong land and cultural capital. This process is called gentrification. The Goutte d'or district is being gentrified and concentrates all the problems associated with it.
Yankel Fijalkow, urban sociologist at the "Architecture, City, Urban Planning, Environment" laboratory, starts by defining this term. He elaborates on this process which is linked to the rehabilitation of old and unhealthy habitats into modern and comfortable housing, with a double consequence on the working class populations: either move to the suburbs or live in overcrowded housing. He goes on with the other aspect of this gentrification, which jeopardises the social diversity of the neighbourhood with emerging problems of tolerance between communities.
