Self-segregation as a driver for spatial polarisation

Kuvaus / Description
  The prevention of spatial segregation is a goal in urban policies for example in Finland. But to which extent is this a feasible goal? Why do different citizen groups (with immigrant background/different class status/ life-stages/other) voluntarily or involuntarily self-segregate? Social and functional segregation is institutionalized through the property market, which to a great extent defines where and how we can (afford to) live (eg. Madanipour 2020). Is there a discrepancy between the stated goals of policy-makers, and the practices and discourses of different citizens groups?
