9781138794931: Socio-Economic Segregation in European Capital Cities: East meets West (Regions and Cities)

Growing inequalities in Europe are a major challenge threatening the sustainability of urban communities and the competiveness of European cities. While the levels of socio-economic segregation in European cities are still modest compared to some parts of the world, the poor are increasingly concentrating spatially within capital cities across Europe. An overlooked area of research, this book offers a systematic and representative account of the spatial dimension of rising inequalities in Europe.

This book provides rigorous comparative evidence on socio-economic segregation from 13 European cities. Cities include Amsterdam, Athens, Budapest, London, Milan, Madrid, Oslo, Prague, Riga, Stockholm, Tallinn, Vienna and Vilnius. Comparing 2001 and 2011, this multi-factor approach links segregation to four underlying universal structural factors: social inequalities, global city status, welfare regimes and housing systems. Hypothetical segregation levels derived from those factors are compared to actual segregation levels in all cities. Each chapter provides an in-depth and context sensitive discussion of the unique features shaping inequalities and segregation in the case study cities.

The main conclusion of the book is that the spatial gap between the poor and the rich is widening in capital cities across Europe, which threatens to harm the social stability of European cities. This book will be a key reference on increasing segregation and will provide valuable insights to students, researchers and policy makers who are interested in the spatial dimension of social inequality in European cities.

Review:

"It will be extremely useful for scholars concerned about general patterns of social inequality as well as specialists studying sociospatial division, gentrification, or segregation (ethnic as well as socioeconomic). The book could also be used to help teach courses on urban sociology and geography, housing studies, or social policy."
Rory Coulter, University of Cambridge, Journal of Urban Affairs

'This well-organized book provides the reader with a feel for the uniqueness of each city and its segregation problem. I especially appreciated the fact that the contributors combined statistical measures of segregation and mapped location coefficients with information on the city’s history, as well as its welfare and housing policies.'

David Varady, University of Cincinnati, Geography Research Forum (GRF)

"...the book will be useful for researchers (academic and policy) who are interested in spatial segregation in any of the cities featured in the book. The book presents the problems of small area comparisons internationally and provides a worthy attempt of differences in spatial segregation in Europe."

Stephen Jivraj, University College London, London, UK, International Journal of Housing Policy
