Jousting Segregation


Using advanced data analysis to eradicate segregation in urban areas

Physical and demographic segregation in cities is known to cause inequalities and impact health negatively, how can we reverse it?

This data driven approach - tested in Greater London - utilises community engagement and the re-purposing of space and buildings to promote social integration. When identifying patterns of segregation, a series of demographic and physical indicators were analysed, providing an openness to intervention and risk of segregation index. This index, merged with a suitability of intervention index, can identify specific districts where positive interventions can make a difference.
