Nestor M. Davidson (Colorado) has posted Reconciling People and Place in Housing and Community Development Policy on SSRN. Here's the abstract:
In housing and community development theory, scholars have long debated tensions between place-based policies and those that focus on fostering mobility. In practice, this is a false dichotomy and this essay explores ways in which place-based policies change the calculus of mobility, while mobility policies deeply shape both the communities people seek and those they leave behind.
