This chapter reviews the contributions made by the individual chapters. It identifies four broad research areas which arise from the chapters in the book: measuring segregation, understanding processes, making comparisons, and understanding outcomes. Although the emphasis is on the measurement or methodological issues, the four broad avenues together pose challenges and opportunities for segregation researchers and we argue that the book is well placed to begin such a stock taking exercise since it brings together international contributions dealing with segregation in countries including Sweden, the UK, and the USA, draws upon a range of different types of data, and also different methodologies. The chapter identifies emerging trends and areas which would benefit from further research.

Keywords:   segregation indices, spatial scale, population data, segregation domains, migration
