(p.171) 8 Opportunities and Challenges for Ethnoburbs

University of Hawai'i Press

This book has explored how Los Angeles's Chinese community has evolved into an ethnoburb, comparing it with downtown Chinatown to highlight its differences from the traditional ethnic enclave. It has shown how ethnoburbs were created by ethnic minority groups and emerged as a new and important form of suburban ethnic settlement due to a combination of factors including global geopolitics and economic forces, U.S. national policies and local demographics, and socioeconomic and political shifts. This concluding chapter summarizes the book's main findings and their implications for the Chinese ethnoburb in San Gabriel Valley. It also describes ethnoburbs in other North American cities and ends by discussing the opportunities and challenges presented by ethnoburbs with regard to immigration, race, and ethnicity.

Keywords:   ethnoburb, Chinese community, Chinatown, ethnic enclave, ethnic minority groups, ethnic settlement, San Gabriel Valley, immigration, race, ethnicity
