This study investigates the gentrification process of Istedgade at Vesterbro, Copenhagen, where Copenhagen City Council made an urban regeneration in the beginning of the 1990’s. Istedgade is a street habitated by many different people, representing many different cultures and where it’s accepted to be different.We want to investigate, the intentions behind of the Copenhagen City Council’s decision about urban renewal in Vesterbro. And in connection with that, find out if and how the citizens were involved in the process.Furthermore we want to investigate how is it possible - through an urban renewal - to ensure diversity in the citizen group of Vesterbro. By using theoretical basis from Robert A. Dahl, Bachrach & Baratz, Richard Florida, Steffen Gulmann and Sharon Zukin, this study will investigate and analyze the street of Istedgade. The empirical data is gathered by an interview with the Chairman of the Vesterbro Lokaludvalg, and mapping of Istedgade to see the development of the street. This study will also discuss the ethics of gentrification, and if the urban regeneration of Vesterbro has fulfilled its purpose. One of our conclusions in this study is that Vesterbro has changed, and the urban regeneration has led to a change of the citizens of Istedgade. Furthermore the business community in this street has transformed into a street with a broader diversity, and where families lives next door to drug addicts.
