Beschreibungen

Through an international comparative research, this unique book examines ethnic residential segregation patterns in relation to the wider society and mechanisms of social division of space in Western European regions. Focuses on eight Southern European cities, develops new metaphors and furthers the theorisation/conceptualisation of segregation in Europe Re-centres the segregation debate on the causes of marginalisation and inequality, and the role of the state in these processes A pioneering analysis of which and how systemic mechanisms, contextual conditions, processes and changes drive patterns of ethnic segregation and forms of socio-ethnic differentiation Develops an innovative inter-disciplinary approach which explores ethnic patterns in relation to European welfare regimes, housing systems, immigration waves, and labour systems

‘Paradoxes of Segregation scrutinises urban segregation landscapes in Southern Europe. It unpacks the dynamic and complex – sometimes non-linear – relations between social inequalities and spatial segregation and the various ways in which these are approached and conceptualised. The book adds to our understanding of (ethnic) segregation by comprehensively discussing the important and distinctive effects of local, regional, and institutional context specificities. A must-read for all who are interested in segregation.’Sako Musterd, Professor of Urban Geography, University of Amsterdam ‘This book is a major contribution to the literature because it draws attention to a large region that is understudied in terms of segregation. The book clearly demonstrates, against common wisdom, that relatively low levels of segregation for disadvantaged groups may coexist with their extreme deprivation. A must-read for anyone interested in segregation issues.’Thomas Maloutas, Professor of Social Geography, Harokopio University, Greece

Thomas Maloutas, Professor of Social Geography, Harokopio University, Greece Through an international comparative research, this unique book examines ethnic residential segregation patterns in relation to the wider society and mechanisms of social division of space in Western European regions, with a focus on eight Southern European cities. The book challenges reductive notions of segregation that dominate theory and policy, and re-centres the segregation debate on the causes of marginalisation and inequality, and the role of the state in these processes. Paradoxes of Segregation offers a pioneering analysis of which and how systemic mechanisms, contextual conditions, processes and changes drive patterns of ethnic segregation and forms of socio-ethnic differentiation. It develops an innovative inter-disciplinary approach, including a new interpretative framework to explore ethnic patterns in relation to European welfare regimes, housing systems, immigration waves, and labour systems, and the socio-urban structure of the city and their changes. Additionally, it develops a new metaphor—"urban diaspora"—which captures processes of segregation found in these cities that challenges the traditional views of the ghetto with important implications for urban theories and urban policies.
