ICEC Baseline Studies online

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.

In June 2014, our project partners from the Urban Renewal Office opened their new community center in one of our study areas – Hippviertel in Ottakring. The “Herbststrasse” will also serve as a place of encounter within our “urban living lab“. Below are some impressions from their opening event.

You´ll find more information on their ongoing activities here (in german).
