Remaking Urban Segregation: Processes of Income Sorting and Neighbourhood Change

Journal: Population, Space and Place Volume: 23, Issue 3 April 2017 Nick Bailey, Wouter P C van Gent, Sako Musterd DOI 10.1002/psp.2013 Abstract Segregation studies have mainly focused on urban structures as a whole or have discussed specific (gentrifying or renewing) neighbourhoods.
