Minority Ethnic Groups and Housing
The central themes
Central themes of this Working Group are:
- Housing conditions, housing preferences and residential mobility of minority ethnic groups.
- Concentration and segregation of minority ethnic groups.
- Living in multicultural neighbourhoods.
Activities and output in recent years
The Working Group organised a workshop on every bigger ENHR conference since 1993. Between 2006 and 2016, we have been present at each of the ENHR-conferences.
In 2018 (Uppsala), we had 12 papers in our workshop, including 3 within a special session on ‘School Segregation’.
In 2019 we organised a very well-attended set of sessions for ENHR 2019 in Athens. We had four sessions with 12 presenters in total.
Future plans and activities
We are planning to organise a workshop in Cyprus 2020.
Papers in our workshop are relevant for a variety of policy fields, like social mixing, immigrant integration, planning for diversity, housing allocation, and social cohesion.
