Summary, in English

This paper presents a comparison of processes of financialisation of built environments in Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Ankara, with emphasis on entrepreneurial urban governance, housing policies and the sphere of cooperative housing. The motivation for focusing specifically on forms of cooperative housing is that cooperative housing represents a particularly interesting segment because of its position between the market and the state. Entrepreneurial urban governance is especially relevant to recent developments in these case cities, as the shift from managerialism to entrepreneurialism has involved privatisation and marketization of housing, opening up this major sector of built environments to the penetration of financial interests.
