The Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley and the Center for California Real Estate (CCRE) have launched a new working paper series commissioning national experts to answer a range of relevant research and policy questions using a rich new data resource from a local land use and housing survey the Terner Center has been fielding in California over the past year.
Jargowsky and Hayes’ proposed research entitled, Exclusionary Zoning Policies and School Segregation will employ the data from the Terner Residential Land Use Survey and the Stanford Education Data Archive to examine the contribution of zoning and other land use policies to school segregation in California, estimating models to address the following questions:
? How much of the variation in racial segregation within and between California school districts can be explained by restrictive land use policies?
? How much of the variation in income segregation within and between California school districts can be explained by restrictive land use policies?
In April 2018, two graduates of the Department of Public Policy and Administration’s public affairs doctoral program, Ashley E. Nickels, GSC ’16, and Jason D. Rivera, GSC ’16, published an edited volume titled Community Development and Public Administration Theory: Promoting Democratic Principles to Improve Communities. Nickels and Rivera not only edited the volume, but also wrote articles featured in the book: Nickels, an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Kent State University, co-authored the article “Calling for Community Control: Local Organizing and Implications for Community Development Policy;” while Rivera, an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the State University of New York-Buffalo State, co-wrote “The Impact of Microfinance Programs on Political Participation: A Study of Rural Indian Women.”
Center Director Paul Jargowsky presented new research on the processes of residential segregation at the Research Symposium on Fair Housing on May 17, 2018 at the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank.
