An ethnoburb is a suburban residential and business area with a notable cluster of a particular ethnic minority population.

Although the group may not constitute the majority within the region, it is a significant amount of the population. That can greatly influence the social geography within the area because of cultural and religious traditional values exhibited. Ethnoburbs allow for ethnic minority.

Previous studies of the ethnic enclave have maintained that there is a singular importance to the co-ethnic network (Korean to Korean, or Cuban to Cuban, for example), and yet this traditional characterisation of the ethnic enclave does not hold true in most urban ethnic enclaves, which include multiple ethnic groups working side by side.

Beyond the Ethnic Enclave Economy 73 Finally, as Bridges and Villemez () show, realistic self-employment options increase the income of wage earners whose employers must pay them more in order.

Finally, this book has nicely connected the field of race and ethnic relations with urban studies by examining an ethnic enclave with the ‘global city’ perspective. This book is ideal as a textbook for courses related to Asian American communities, urban studies, and race and ethnic relations, particularly at the graduate level.

This is a list of ethnic enclaves in various countries of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds to the native population. An ethnic enclave in this context denotes an area primarily populated by a population with similar ethnic or racial background. This list also includes concentrations rather than enclaves, and historic examples which may no longer be an ethnic enclave.

The current study applies the enclave argument to a non-market context by analysing an original survey of ethnic Koreans living in the city of Yanji, located in the northeastern corner of China. In doing so, this study probes into how ethnic enclave relates to inequality and stratification within the context of China’s transitional economy.
