Chapter 14: Ethnic Enclaves in a Time of Plague: A Comparative Analysis of New York City and Chicago
Global Reflections on COVID-19 and Urban Inequalities
Brian Doucet, Rianne van Melik, and Pierre Fulion
The COVID-19 pandemic was not a great ‘equaliser’, but rather an event whose impact intersected with pre-existing inequalities affecting different people, places, and geographic scales. Nowhere is this more apparent than in housing.
Written by an international group of experts, this book casts light on how the virus has impacted the experience of home and housing through the lens of wider urban processes around transportation, land use, planning policy, racism, and inequality. Case studies from around the world examine issues around gentrification, housing processes, design, systems, finance and policy.
Offering crucial insights for reforming cities to be more resilient to future crises, this is an invaluable resource for scholars and policy makers alike.
