Housing Policies for Ethnic Minorities in Developed Societies: an Editorial Introduction
AbstractThis special issue of Geography Research Forum includes eight articles from the US, Canada, The Netherlands, Australia, and Israel that deal with the way in which immigrants and ethnic minorities are treated as part of their country’s housing and neighborhood development policy. All these countries are facing the same challenges: How is it possible to promote the ability of ethnic minorities to maintain their identity within the context of strong, cohesive societies? And in the urban-planning context, how do planning policies support the inclusion of these minorities into the general national discourse and ensure relevant and adequate social environments?
