The central theme(s) of the Working Group

  • Housing conditions, housing preferences and residential mobility of minority ethnic groups.
  • Concentration and segregation of minority ethnic groups.
  • Living in multicultural neighbourhoods.

Summary of the activities of the Working Group during the past years
The working group Housing for Minority Ethnic Groups has been established in 1993 by A.Sule Özüekren and Ronald Van Kempen. In 2004 Gideon Bolt replaced Ronald and in 2016 Rikke Skovgaard Nielsen took over Sule's position. We organised a workshop on every bigger ENHR conference since 1993. Between 2006 and 2016, we have been present at each of the ENHR-conferences. We skipped the 2017 conference as it coincided with the start of the academic year for both coordinators.

Policy implications
We are planning to organise a workshop in Uppsala 2018. Next to the regular sessions we will also organise special sessions on "School Segregation".
