Cost of Division

Cost of Division“Separate but equal is not an option. Parallel living and the provision of parallel services are unsustainable both morally and economically … the costs of a divided society — whilst recognising the very real fears of people around safety and security considerations — are abundantly clear: segregated housing and education, security costs, less than efficient public service provision … Policy that simply adapts to, but does not alter these challenges, results in inefficient resource allocations. These are not sustainable in the medium to long-term.”
