Data Challenge on Integration of Migrants in Cities (D4I)

The aim of the Data Challenge on Integration of Migrants in Cities (D4I) is to stimulate research on various aspects of the integration of migrants at local level.

Through this initiative we make available data at high spatial resolution derived from the 2011 Census which shows the concentration of migrants in cities of 8 EU Member States. The high spatial resolution of the derived data allows to examine patterns of concentration of migrants’ communities in specific neighborhoods and to perform comparisons across different origins, cities of different sizes and EU countries. We welcome in particular qualitative research combining this data with additional information and field work for specific cities and communities. The topics of research could include the relations between spatial concentration, urban diversity and spatial segregation and education, housing, access to public services, income and electoral outcomes.
