This article conceptualizes redlining in terms of a self-fulfilling prophecy. It discusses how processes and institutions at different scales contribute to the process of redlining, and to our understanding of redlining. It explains the origins of redlining in the US as well as development of redlining, anti-redlining struggles, and redlining research in the US. Finally, it deals with the scare evidence of redlining outside the US, and with the occurrence of redlining in other markets than that of mortgage finance, such as insurance.
