The problem and potential of segregated districts: Urban design and planning principles for more liveable and cohesive segregated districts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The lack of proper planning to address development and rapid formation of cities can lead to social and spatial inequalities, often manifesting as segregation. Segregation in cities arises when residents are divided into different categories in terms of income, religion, race, socio-economic status, etc. The consequences of this phenomenon are inconsistent with sustainable development in cities. As a result, the question arises: what kind of social and spatial interventions are needed to deal with segregation in districts? The main aim of this paper is to elucidate which factors are important for multi-scale, social-spatial integration of segregated districts. To gain a better understanding of segregated districts, a broad review of the literature that focuses on social-spatial segregation and intervention will be made. To conclude, some solutions and policies will be suggested to deal with segregation. Criteria for these policies will be defined independently of any particular context to allow for general applicability.
