Study shows ‘Anti-Muslim sentiment’ may be behind the ‘White Flight’ trends in Glasgow
Anti-Muslim emotion could be the reason for the observed “White British homeowners move-out followed by Muslim background move-in” styles in the Scottish city neighborhoods.

Hawzah News Agency (Glasgow, Scotland) - Professor of Urban Economics and Social Statistics at the University of Sheffield, Gwilym Pryce, said the data left researchers “with the uncomfortable possibility” that the “white flight” trends they observed having taken place in the Scottish city could be partly driven by “anti-Pakistani or anti-Muslim sentiment”. Using property registration data for 40 per cent of the most deprived areas of Glasgow, the study noted the names of both buyers and sellers in every property purchase between 2003 and 2014 in order to look at the impact that inflows of “ethnically ‘other’ name-group” homeowners had on home buying in the local areas.
