Define the term ‘ghettoisation’.

A ghetto is an area or locality that is populated largely by members of a particular community. Ghettoisation refers to the process that leads to such a situation. This may occur due to various social, cultural and economic reasons. Fear or hostility may also compel a community to group together as they feel more secure living among their own. A ghettoised community has few options of moving out, which may lead to them becoming alienated from the rest of society.
