Life in Poverty Neighbourhoods by Jurgen Friedrichs

Book Description

In contemporary European and American urban policy and politics and in academic research it is typically assumed that spatial concentrations of poor households and/or ethnic minority households will have negative effects upon the opportunities to improve the social conditions of those who are living in these concentrations. Since the level of concentration tends to be correlated with the level of spatial segregation the 'debate on segregation' is also linked to the social opportunity discussion. This book explores the central questions in urban and housing studies: * Do poor neighbourhoods make their residents poorer? * Does the neighbourhood structure exert an effect on the residents (behavioural, attitudinal, or psychological) even when controlling for individual characteristics of the residents? This issue has offered a locus for multi-disciplinary investigations on both sides of the Atlantic, and this volume demonstrates the rich geographical, sociological, economic and psychological dimensions of this issue. This book was previously published as a special issue of the journal Housing Studies.

Between the Social and the Spatial by Jurgen Friedrichs Between the Social and the Spatial, Hardback (November 2009)

Since the beginning of the 1990s, the gradual widening of scientific and policy debates on poverty from a narrow focus on income poverty to a more inclusive concept of social exclusion, has made poverty research both more interesting and more complicated. This book deals with this transition to a more multidimensional conceptualization of poverty.

Quantifying Neighbourhood Effects by Jurgen Friedrichs Quantifying Neighbourhood Effects, Hardback (December 2008)

Many policies in Western European countries and the US aim to counter spatial concentrations of deprivation and create more socio-economically mixed residential areas. Such policies are founded on the belief that neighbourhoods have a effect upon the well-being of individuals. This book intends to contribute to this policy-relevant discussion.
