Community and Regional Planning
Journal or Book Title
Numerous urban dwellers worldwide still live under residential segregation, which can act “as a poverty trap with job restrictions” (UN-Habitat, 2016, p. 79). Residential segregation occurs in a geographic space where individuals with similar socio-economic characteristics, such as income, are living close to each other and cut off from individuals of different socio-economic features. A clear understanding of the consequences that residential segregation has on poor people’s urban economic mobility is imperative to ensure that they move out of poverty. This is a pressing challenge for cities around the world, urging policy makers to deliver alternative solutions about planning-related topics such as housing, and transportation.
