    [Residential segregation among the `Aussiedler' population in the Federal Republic of Germany] Kleinraumliche Wohnsegregation von Aussiedlern in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland.

    Burkner HJ


    Residential segregation among the `Aussiedler' [ethnic German immigrant] population in Germany has been an issue of growing interest.... Yet, there is a significant lack of empirical evidence about problems related to it. This article contributes to the understanding of the appearance, the causes, and the consequences of the socio-residential segregation of ethnic Germans from Eastern Europe within selected German cities. Segregation is explained in terms of the ways by which this group gains access to the housing market. Especially, institutional factors, such as the modes of distribution within the public housing sector, are shown to be substantial to it. In spite of high degrees of spatial concentration, the intensity of internal social relations of this group does not reach the level of other equally segregated minorities.

    Sectarian demography, territoriality and political development in Northern Ireland.

    Anderson J; Shuttleworth I

    POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY. 1998 Feb; 17(2):187-208.

    Here we discuss, firstly, the limits of Census-based empiricism [in Northern Ireland] and the usually unacknowledged problems of data and interpretation which have resulted in a seriously misleading `conventional wisdom'. Secondly, we question its sectarian terms of reference, the over-identification of religion and politics, and misconceptions of ethnicity.... Thirdly, we focus on some of the flawed policy `solutions' associated with empiricism and sectarianism, including `internal' power-sharing and `consociational' strategies for political development.
