In this Afternoon Seminars@CMIST event, Neli Demireva from the University of Essex will deliver a talk entitled 'Is Co-ethnic Concentration a Barrier to the Successful Integration of Migrants and Minorities in Britain', based on work with Anthony Heath.
Integration is a complex process that can rarely be captured by looking into one or two adaptation outcomes. This paper explores the barriers to the integration of migrants and minorities in Britain and in particular examines the question of whether growing presence of co-ethnics in the neighbourhood area has a detrimental effect upon the integration process. The results are mixed. Some important integration outcomes such as employment prospects and turnout are not being associated significantly and detrimentally with co-ethnic concentration; while others, notably contact with white British is. The paper highlights the great integration leap that has happened in the 1.5 and 2nd generation compared to the first across ethnic minority groups.
