The research directly addresses a major challenge for contemporary urban policy: rising inequality and segregation in urban areas. The research examines residential segregation and mobility of foreign citizens with innovative methods and previously unexplored data, which deepens our understanding of residential segregation and its effects on social inclusion. The research has three objectives. The first objective is to examine residential segregation via an innovative method using individual scalable neighbourhoods in Czechia. The second objective is to examine the residential mobility of significant minorities with respect to location, age, gender, and housing. The third objective is to delve into the role of neighbourhood contexts shaping residential behaviour. All significant minorities in Czechia are analysed in the project. The proposed research goes beyond common approaches applied so far in migration research in Czechia and it offers evidence-based insights into contemporary urban change.
