Integration of Immigrant Minorities: Spatial Factors, Economy and Cohabitation

Coordinators

Sébastien Arcand, HEC Montréal
Jacques Ledent, Centre Urbanisation Culture Société

Objectives

The goal for this topic's researchers is to study the relationships between different dimensions of the immigrant integration process, with particular attention given to the links between space and ethnicity (at the regional, urban, institutional and individual levels). At the heart of the research are the dynamics and segmentation of the job market as well as the relationships maintained by citizens of diverse backgrounds in their daily activities, most notably within their neighbourhoods. The CEETUM's members also study employment barriers for immigrants, as well as job market entrepreneurship and adaptation to the multiethnic composition of the population.
