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.

Interethnic Coexistence in European Cities (ICEC)

International research has shown that urban neighbourhoods are still important arenas of social interactions and places of interethnic coexistence. Super-diversity in the neighbourhood is a micro­cosm, mirroring problem constellations at the city scale. Yet problems within diversity-shaped neigh­bourhoods require locally determined solutions. Thus, municipal policies have increasingly taken a territorial focus when addressing social and integration problems through neighbourhood-based initiatives.
