Atlantic Interview of Myron Orfield on Sustainable Integration
The Atlantic uploaded yesterday an interview by Amanda Kolson Hurley of Myron Orfield (Minn). Titled "The Persistence of America's 'Easy White Enclaves,'" the interview explores policy decisions about the siting of subsidized housing development, which issues are so topical now that SCOTUS has remanded the Inclusive Communities litigation. But, Orfield also discusses what his research has shown about what levels of integration (read: diminution of white predominance) lead to resegregation. The short piece links to a 2013 Housing Policy Debate article Orfield co-authored with Thomas Luce as well as a more recent study of the causes of segregation in the Twin Cities.
