Book Description

This title was first published in 2000. This work has its origins in the 1995 Congress of the International Federation for Housing and Planning, held in Belfast. The theme was "Accommodating Differences". "Differences" were defined in broad terms, and included ethnic and social, economic and political differences. However, Frederick W. Boal's own interest in ethnic differences motivated him to invite a number of Congress participants to make available their papers for inclusion in this book of essays. It seeks to offer experience that can be drawn on by housing practitioners who are operating in multi-ethnic contexts. It also provides empirical material that should contribute to the development of more soundly-based theoretical insights in both urban sociology and social geography.
