Pablo Mateos to be panelist in an international conference in Paris on spatial segregation

The consequences of the spatial concentration of immigrants

Dr Pablo Mateos will present key research findings for Great Britain, and a new method for studying segregation using name origins, at an international conference on January 15/16: 'Together or Separate:
Spatial Concentration and Immigrant Incorporation in the United States, Great Britain and France'.

The conference will focus on the effects of spatial concentration on the socio-economic incorporation of immigrants, and their policical consequnces. All three countries have recently experienced tensions and debates about immigration and national identity. The conference will aim to assess findings from existing research, identify questions that need to be explored further,and develop cross-national research designs that might answer these questions. It is part of a larger project, lead by the University of Paris 8, to create an international multidisciplinary network of scholars to collaborate on quantitative and qualitative studies on these issues through joint-research funding. As well as UCL, the project partners are the University of Paris 8, University of Califionia, Berkeley, California State University and Stanford University.
