This volume brings together leading researchers from the United States, UK, and Europe to explore the processes that lead to segregation, and the outcomes and implications that follow. Making use of new methods and data sources that can offer fresh perspectives on segregation in different contexts, the book considers how the spatial patterning of segregation might be best understood and measured.
