Ethnic identity, residential concentration and social welfare: the Jews in London

S. Waterman, B. Kosmin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Discusses the problems of welfare provision that arise from the spatial concentration of London's Jewish population. Concentration is a spatial strategy that allows the Jews to maintain a strong institutional base of ethnic organizations while avoiding the stigma of segregation. Concentration without segregation provides the Jews with a range of housing types to suit the needs of a diverse population, and does not isolate them from access to the benefits of mainstream society. -from Editor
