(p.17) 1 The Integration Imperative
The One-Way Street of Integration

Edward G. Goetz

Cornell University Press

This chapter lays out the argument in favour of public policies to achieve racial integration. It summarizes the individual and societal level costs of segregation and it presents the affirmative argument for integration. Residential integration is seen as the best way to address questions of segregation, spatial inequities, and unequal life chances across racial groups in the U.S. Further, the pro-integration argument suggests that only through residential integration can we achieve goals related to truly democratic governance and inclusiveness in social, economic, and political relationships.

Keywords:   Integration, Segregation, Poverty, Race, Regionalism, Concentrated poverty
