PhD research Study: Residential conditions for immigrant population

The arrival of large immigrant populations affects the social as well as the urban structure of the host cities. Immigrants with similar ethnic and social background often occupy segregated areas in host cities, where residential conditions are systematically different from other areas. Residential conditions consist of citywide aspects (spatial distribution, transportation network), neighbourhood facilities (public space, amenities) housing standards (size, occupation, facilities).
Specific demographic profiles of immigrants can be identified (country of origin, age, employment status, economic status, religion, economic situation or length of stay in the host area) in order to explore specific residential conditions in the Case Study cities. In this study the level of spatial integration or segregation is of particular interest.

Some of these parameters are illustrated by examples from Oslo and Stavanger.

Migration has long been an important topic in European countries. In Norway, particularly work immigration has played an important role. There seems to be a reciprocal relationship between immigration, spatial structures and residential conditions in the host city and spatial segregation/integration.

This PhD research study explores the mechanisms of immigration as well as residential conditions that meet immigrants in the host cities.

It is further of interest if there are certain spatial or social conditions that can contribute to a better spatial integration of immigration population into the host city.
