The ethnic geography of EthniCities: The 'American model' and residential concentration in London
Ethnicities, 2(2):209-235

Keywords: ethnicity London residential segregation spatial concentration


Does London conform to the classic American model – based on the work of the ‘Chicago School’ – with regard to the residential segregation of ethnic groups? To address this question, methods of analysing census small area data on ethnic group residential segregation in London are introduced, which provide more detailed information on the degree and extent of segregation than the usually employed methods of mapping and calculating single indices. These indicate very little spatial segregation of ethnic minority groups in London compared with New York, which is used here to exemplify the ‘American model’. In both cities, however, the White majority is very substantially separated from other ethnic groups.

Reimagining Berlin: World City, National Capital or Ordinary Place?
European Urban and Regional Studies, 6(2):145-164


Globalization has had a dramatic effect on the way in which we understand the operation of urban systems. Cities – or their elites – have increasingly sought to redefine and reimagine themselves through place marketing in ways which allow them to compete in the global marketplace. The ‘exceptional’ case of Berlin is explored in the context of regional and global restructuring. Berlin has been at the centre of dramatic changes over the last decadeand has been forced to reimagine itself in quite a different set of global understandings. A series of different – competing and sometimes complementary – imaginary Berlins are being constructed in the process of reinsertion into ‘normal’ capitalist urbanization. The relationships between property-led visions with Berlin at the heart of a wider Europe, visions of Berlin as a revived capital of a united Germany and the redefinition of Berlin as an ordinary place are considered. Each of these visions offers a different interpretation of Berlin. The paper critically assesses the extent to which it is possible to escape from pro-growth agendas in developing an urban future for the city and explores some of the implications of Berlin’s current development trajectory.
