Residential Segregation and Regional Democracy

Show Summary Details


Residential racial and class segregation produce or exacerbate distributive injustice and political exclusion. Integration as the dispersal of a concentrated minority among the majority, however, often has its own harmful consequences. An alternative ideal of differentiated solidarity combines positive affinity grouping with non‐discrimination and regional government that encourages attention to shared problems and inequality.

Keywords: class; distributive justice; integration; non‐discrimination; race; regional government; residential segregation; solidarity
