Conventional debates of ethnicity and housing within social policy have accepted that there are differential housing outcomes amongst minority ethnic communities, and between those communities and majority ethnic communities. In Britain, in so far as generalisations can be made, Brown's (1984) conclusions that minority ethnic communities experience poorer quality housing than the majority white community have been validated by the 1991 Census (Owen, 1993). Throughout Europe (Blauw, 1991, p. 49; Body-Gendrot, 1993, p. 81; Linden and Lindberg, 1991; Owen, 1994, p. 28) and the United States, (Goldberg, 1993) there also appears to be a degree of residential segregation between ethnic groups.
