Erst sehr viel spater wurde der Prozess auch in den Stadten ecu ropas beobachtet, so stammt beispielsweise die erste deutsche Studie aus dem Jahr 1988 (Dangschat und Friedrichs, 1988), fand dann aber sehr schnell Ein gang in die deutsche stadtsoziologische Forschung. Dementsprechend nahm auch die Anzahl der Publikationen sehr schnell zu. Einen guten Uberblick uber den Forschungsstand und die einzelnen Forschungsfragen nordamerika nischer und europaischer Studien geben die Sammelbande von Laska und Spain (1980), Palen und London (1984), Smith und Williams (1986) und Weesep und Musterd (1991). Speziell auf die Entwicklungen in deutschen Stadten beziehen sich die Beitrage in Blasius und Dangschat (1990) und in Dangschat und Blasius (1994). Betrachtet guy die vorliegenden Forschungsergebnisse wird guy schnell feststellen, dass sie trotz ihrer Fulle eine Reihe von grundlegenden Lucken aufweisen.

Das wird besonders deutlich, wenn es darum geht, Prozesse der Gentrification in ostdeutschen Stadten zu prognostizieren.
