Abstract

This article explores whether rising segregation may in turn erode support for the redistributive policies of the welfare state, further increasing levels of inequality. It tests whether rising segregation may in turn erode support for the redistributive policies of the welfare state, further increasing levels of inequality. It demonstrates that the individual factors shaping these attitudes are quite different and that the influence of neighbourhood context also varies. Rising spatial segregation would appear to erode support for redistribution but to increase support for welfare recipients—at least in a context where the dominant media discourse presents such a stigmatising image of those on welfare benefits
