Major global, national and regional forces, in the context of growing economic inequality, are restructuring metropolitan areas, creating a new socio-spatial order with more rigid divisions and greater inequality. In this lecture and webcast, Dr. David Hulchanski identifies these trends and discusses the processes that account for them: changes in the labour market, the housing market, social spending and taxes, and the failure to seriously address housing and employment discrimination. These processes play out differently in metropolitan areas based on regional and local factors. The challenge is to better understand, and in turn effectively challenge, the specific processes creating these divides within individual metropolitan areas.
