New research project:

"Micro Study on the Effects of Short-Term Rentals in the City of Salzburg" (Sponsor City Salzburg: funding period 2018-2019)  

Building on the investigation of short-term leases in Salzburg (SBGAirbnb) for the Austrian Federation of Cities (06 / 2018-1 / 2019), the current research project investigates the concrete effects of short-term lettings in central Salzburg districts. Specifically, socio-spatial effects and especially the perception of the neighborhood are explored. The following research questions will be examined: 1) How does the short-term rental of apartments affect the neighborhood? 2.) Which everyday world changes are named by the different actors on the ground? 3.) Which conflict forms and negotiations of conflicts exist?
