    There is an enduring belief amongst some that segregation is worsening and undermining social cohesion, and that this is especially visible in the growing divides between the schools in which our children are educated.

    This book uses up-to-date evidence to interrogate some of the controversial claims made by the 2016 Casey Review, providing an analysis of contemporary patterns of ethnic, residential and social segregation, and looking at the ways that these changing geographies interact with each other. The authors consider the challenges of measuring segregation, the scales at which segregation is most rapidly changing and provide a model for mapping changes in the future.

    Richard Harris is Professor of Quantitative Social Geography at the School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol and a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences.

    Professor Ron Johnston OBE is a Fellow of the British Academy and the Academy of Social Sciences.
