PS28.0 Towards a model of a multi-ethnic neighborhood

The prevailing literature on neighborhood segregation examines the location of a single ethnic, immigrant, or racial group within a focused place. This situation still applies in many instances, but there are other cases where more than one ethnic group shares the same space. Notions of superdiversity and multi-ethnicity have been addressed repeatedly in the literature but there are few models of how these conditions may operate on the ground. This poster proposes the development of such a schema which will be useful in conceptualizing multi-ethnic neighborhoods and positing the differences between them. Such a model will take into account the type of contact between ethnic groups inhabiting the same space, the degree and scale of clustering, the societal context, and the differences between residential and business clusters. This model will then offer case examples for each type. Further implications of what these different configurations may mean for ethnic cooperation, incorporation and advancement will be explored.
