We invited presenters from Berlin, Barcelona, and Amsterdam – cities which have taken action in the past to mitigate Airbnb’s impact on the private rental market – to explore what strategies might be adopted here in the UK. As well, a representative from London discussed her own experiences of Airbnbification. Andrej Holm, a senior researcher at the Department of Urban and Regional Sociology at Humboldt University, explored Berlin’s history of tourist apartment regulation and examined strategies deployed by legislators and activists. Jelke Bosma, A PhD candidate at the Department of Media Studies and the Centre for Urban Studies at the University of Amsterdam, examined Amsterdam’s approach to regulating short-term rentals, highlighting how Airbnb has responded to and cooperated with regulation. Gabriela D’Adda, a PhD candidate in the department of Political Science at Università degli Studi di Catania, considered Barcelona’s approach to regulating Airbnb while maintaining a healthy tourist economy. Sharda Rozena, a PhD candidate at the University of Leicester, reflected on her personal experiences of Airbnbification in her home borough of Kensington, London, and the strategies of resistance employed by tenants in a housing complex affected by Airbnb.
