Migration and Integration in Urban Neighbourhoods
At different levels of scale, especially the neighbourhood, the main research is about the spatial patterns and effects of increased social inequality. Special attention is paid when investigating segregation and its consequences for cohesion and urban societies’ ability to integrate on so-called neighbourhoods of arrival. Here, observable patterns of ethno-cultural and socio-economic exclusion and inclusion processes are looked into in the context of specific urban spatial constellations. The research is guided by the question of what the significance and the role of individual neighbourhoods is for the city as a whole and how spatial structures that promote integration can be influenced and designed through urban development.
