This chapter uses a life-course perspective to analysis changes in ethnic segregation levels in Britain. The results show residential desegregation across ages and ethnic groups through the 1990s, especially for young adults. Common migration experiences shape desegregation since young adults from all backgrounds move towards diverse urban areas and are mobile whereas older adults and families leave these areas. It is concluded that it is necessary to take age into account to understand the dynamics of ethnic residential segregation in Britain.
