MAPURBAN: Migrant Mobility and Access to Public Urban Resources
MAPURBAN will bring to light differences in access to urban resources across the socio-economic and ethnic profile of three major cities. By comparing migrant arrival and settlement in Stockholm, Berlin and London, the project will integrate existing data on spatial inequality and urban segregation, and show how these affect migrant mobility and integration. Taken together, this is argued to have an impact on newly arriving people’s participation in urban society and in expanding their ‘right to the city’. MAPURBAN will utilise interdisciplinary multinational research findings to produce new knowledge that will inform government strategies towards urban migration, re-framing immigrant integration as a multi-scalar (national, urban and local) process that contributes to sustainable urban development. We will consider: Regional public transport mobility and access to urban resources, Urban policies promoting local migrant infrastructure and policy formation, and Neighbourhood interventions undertaking co-creative projects with local communities. By comparing multi-scale social and spatial data across three cities, MAPURBAN will provide new findings on access to urban resources through the application of different participatory tools, to promote equal living conditions, enhance accessibility and mobility, and ultimately, integration, especially for new arrivals to the city.
