Residential segregation and mobility of foreign citizens: analysis of neighbourhoods, housing trajectories, and neighbourhood context

Project duration: 
2019 - 2021

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.

This article reports on a new empirical study evaluating crime concentration at places in a postsocialist city. We use principles of the law of crime concentration at places and the Cambridge Crime Harm Index to measure crime count and crime harm concentration at the level of street segments. The research found differences between crime concentration in a post-socialist city and crime concentration reported by recent studies from US or UK cities.
