Hamburg

Due to the federal system of Germany, Hamburg is both: a city and a federal state (governed by the Hamburg Senat, i.e. the assembly of different ministries). It has a pouplation of almost 1,800,000 inhabitants, with a 51.4% of women and a 14.1% of foreigners living in the city.

Like many other big cities Hamburg state is faced with the problem of social segregation. Though the city (and also the region) belongs to the richest one in Europe; -in terms of economical development and gross income in average - there is a gap between rich and poor districts. Deprived areas could be described typically by the following characteristics: unemployment among people afed 15 to 25 and 55 to 65, people with social income, percentage of inmigrants, households with kids, one person households, crime rate, fluctuation in social housing estates.

The specific challenge we wish to address in our city is maintaining urban and social mix in disdvantaged areas regarding the following issues: special solutions for middle class households (including new instruments for financing social housing projects); up-grading of housing stock to future orientated requirements; public-private partnership; implementation of general services; appropriate housing for the mobile workforce (concerning the uncertainty of the labour market).
