About this book

This volume presents an international comparison of segregation patterns of immigrants and policy reactions at local and state level. The objective is to give an insight into the European experience with ethnic segregation in metropolitan areas. European cities have generally become multi-ethnic metropolises, consisting of a mix of ethnic categories. However, a homogeneous European picture does not exist. Patterns of ethnic segregation and policy reactions differ from city to city. The following metropolises are compared: Amsterdam, Brussels, D#sseldorf, Frankfurt, London, Manchester, Paris, Stockholm and Toronto (Canada).
Audience: This invaluable book will be of interest to researchers and students in geographical, ethnic and policy studies as well as to civil servants and policy makers working in large metropolises and national governments.


Ethnic segregation and policy - introduction; the Netherlands - Amsterdam and the specification of the conceptual framework; Belgium - Brussels; Germany - Frankfurt am Main and Dusseldorf; Great Britain - London and Manchester; Sweden - Stockholm; France - Paris; Canada - Toronto; ethnic segregation in nine metropolises.
