On 30th April, the ICEC Vienna team participated in the kickoff event of the neighbourhood project “Hallo NachbarIn” (Hello Neighbour), a project which aims to increase the participation of residents in the Mariahilf district of Vienna in local events. Each Thursday, the “idea market” is open for suggestions from the local population about how a nicer neighbourhood and cohesion amongst neighbours might be best achieved.
In cooperation with the Urban Renewal Office 6/14/15, the ICEC Vienna team will be present at the weekly market at Kurt-Pint-Platz ( 1060, Vienna) to engage with local residents. We are looking forward to gaining an insight into neighbourhood belonging and interethnic coexistence. See you at the market!
Impressions from our field trip in Van der Pekbuurt, Amsterdam – April 2015
Earlier this week the city project teams met in Amsterdam, giving us the opportunity to visit another of the case study areas. This time it was Van der Pekbuurt . For more information about the area and why it was chosen to be a ICEC case study area, please visit the district profile page.
The ICEC Baseline Studies lay the foundation for an analysis on how can cities promote interethnic coexistence in the local context and which political measures are the most adequate for strengthening the integrative power of an urban neighbourhood as a place of living and identification of a diverse urban population. Albeit largely descriptive, they aim to provide a detailed account of each city´s diverse population in the context of immigration and how the city´s administration and political actors have developed urban policies dealing with diversity. These ICEC reports present basic yet relevant information that will be needed for answering ICEC´s main research questions.
The reports can be downloaded from our publications page.
