The coexistence in Barcelona between inhabitants of different ethnic groups generates segregation by difference of income; not for ethnic reasons. This is evidenced by the analysis of the urban spatial structure of the city carried out by researchers from the department of Applied Economics of the UAB. The study has determined, on the one hand, the displacement of low-income groups to poor neighborhoods, deprived of a residence in places of interest due to gentrification and, on the other hand, education as a hopeful way to introduce this sector to the space "banned" for economic reasons.
