An Alternative Ethnic Settlement
This chapter describes the ethnoburb, a new type of suburb that expresses a set of contemporary ethnic relations involving interethnic group and intraethnic class tension or cooperation in a unique spatial form and internal socioeconomic structure. After providing an overview of the conceptual model of the ethnoburb and linking it to the framework of ethnicity and space, the chapter explains how the ethnoburb is formed as an alternative ethnic settlement. It then discusses a framework of connections between global and national economic restructuring trends as well as possible sites of ethnoburbs, along with other factors that contribute to the formation of ethnoburbs, including geopolitics, U.S. immigration policy, and locality conditions. It also examines the ethnoburb's position in the contemporary socioeconomic and political fabric, as well as how it engages with different kinds of social and economic relationships. Finally, it explores how the ethnoburb differs from ghettos and ethnic enclaves and outlines some theoretical considerations regarding ethnoburbs.
