Neighborhood Environments and Immigrant Integration I: Quantitative Approaches

Type: Paper
Theme: Ethnonationalism and Exclusion Around the World
Sponsor Groups: Ethnic Geography Specialty Group, Urban Geography Specialty Group, Cultural Geography Specialty Group
Organizers: Jeremy Nemeth, Alessandro Rigolon, Edelina Burciaga
Chairs: Jeremy Nemeth


This session focuses on the roles that place plays in shaping contexts of reception for immigrants. This focus is imperative given the rapidly-changing geography of immigration in the U.S. Papers explore the relationship between intra-region location (e.g., central city vs. suburb) and neighborhood satisfaction among immigrants; how urban design (e.g., walkability, parks) is associated with perceptions of integration among immigrants; how threats of gentrification/displacement interact with immigrants’ sense of belonging; how socio-political climates and “warmth of welcome” shape the immigrant experience; novel ways of theorizing/measuring integration and belonging; how planners might make new gateway communities more welcoming for immigrants; how immigrants find ways to thrive in suburban areas, small towns, and rural areas that often lack the resources they need; and the role of place in shaping immigrant integration in new or re-emerging gateways (South, Southwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions).
