In this presentation, Dr. Rana Khazbak will share findings from her research on the experiences of young people affected by social housing regeneration in London. Her study focused on mixed-communities regeneration which replaces social housing estates with mixed-tenure housing to increase community socio-economic mix.

Situated in the neighbourhood effects literature and using the capability approach as an analytical framework, her talk will focus on the mechanisms mediating the relationship between mixed-communities regeneration and young people’s capabilities. Capabilities are defined as people’s ability to be and do the things they value in life.

This presentation draws on data from participatory research with teenagers (12-19 years) and interviews with adult community stakeholders at a London housing estate that has been transformed to a mixed community.
