Comment: ‘Neighbourhood attachment in ethnically diverse areas: The role of interethnic ties’

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

While unearthing patterns and regularities in data, a recent article by Górny and Torunczyk-Ruiz (2013) falls short of explaining the observed patterns. This comment augments the article in this regard. The considerations that are brought to bear here on the article relate to preferences and self-selection; to human, social, neighbourhood-specific, and political capital; and to attachment to a neighbourhood, and preference for diversity.
