New article on race in mixed-income developments

Nov 7 2014

New co-authored article, “The Enduring Significance of Race in Mixed-Income Developments” by NIMC Director, Mark Joseph and colleagues Amy Khare and Robert Chaskin from the University of Chicago was recently published in Urban Affairs Review. Drawing on data from a multiyear research study of three mixed-income developments in Chicago, the authors examine how race impacts the everyday life and experiences of residents in mixed-income developments, in addition to the interracial and intraracial social dynamics within the predominantly African-American neighborhoods. Mixed-income developments are designed along the lines of income and housing tenure, but discussion around the significance of race has been largely absent. The authors hope to bring attention to the issues of race, racial tensions and perceived discrimination in mixed-income developments so that future policies and practices around public housing redevelopment take a race-conscious approach.

The post New article on race in mixed-income developments appeared first on Mandel School.
