Comparative Cross-City Report
Neighbourhood Initiatives and Belonging in Super‐diverse Neighbourhoods in Amsterdam and Vienna: A comparative and applied‐oriented analysis of neighbourhood‐related policies
ICEC is based on a systematic comparison of the aims, structural features and outcomes of integrativeinitiatives at the neighbourhood level in Amsterdam, Stockholm and Vienna. This cross-city comparison focuses on similarities and differences in Amsterdam and Vienna.
The selected initiatives in this analysis are designed to function as a ‘space of encounter’ for neighbourhood residents and provide activities that offer the opportunity for interethnic and – more generally – intergroup contacts. Initiatives in this report include integration measures that explicitly focus on the neighbourhood (place-based) and those where the location in the case study neighbourhood is rather incidental (people-based).

The ICEC newsletter aims to keep people interested in the project and the work we are doing up-to-date. Our first newsletter (published Oct. 2014) offers an overview of the project, what we are trying to do and how. Our second (published Feb. 2015) provides an insight into our ongoing fieldwork.
Baseline Reports: Superdiversity and Urban Policies
These reports lay the foundation for an analysis on how cities can promote interethnic coexistence in the local context and which political measures are the most approriate for strengthening the urban neighbourhood as an integrative place of living and identification of a diverse urban population. The reports are largely descriptive, aiming 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 the foundation to the research and answering ICEC’s main research questions. 0xc1aa500e 0x003443d5
