Segregation or integration - what's going on?
Demography’s contribution to debates on segregation, diversity and integration
A three-day event, comprising two courses on monitoring population dynamics in multicultural Britain, plus a one-day conference, organised by the Population and Places (POPLA) research group within CCSR, was held at the University of Manchester, Wednesday to Friday 16-18th May, 2007.
Presentations and notes are available from the Conference and Workshops Programmes pages.
The conference “Segregation or integration – what’s going on?” was held at the University of Manchester, Hulme Hall, Thursday 17th May. It showcased recent methodological and empirical research on the measurement of population change and diversity, and explored its contribution to the wider debates over segregation and integration. The event was designed to appeal to those from a broad range of disciplinary and policy perspectives. More
The courses provided an opportunity to obtain hands-on training in the use and interpretation of measures of segregation, diversity and integration and in the methods for monitoring population change at small area level and with an ethnic group dimension. They were conducted by the Population and Places (POPLA) research group at the Centre for Census and Survey Research (CCSR). Thank you all for coming! More
