    • Discrimination in the job market; ethnic minorities are more likely to be less educated, unemployed and on low income, forcing them into areas of cheap housing
    • Social hostility / unfriendliness from the majority population
    • Racially motivated violence against ethnic minorities, or fear of such violence
    • Discrimination by house sellers, estate agents, financial institutions, private landlords and state housing agencies
