New article testing theories of spatial and segmented assimilation

The International Migration Review has published an article entitled “Spatial Incorporation of Multiple Immigrant Groups in Gateway Cities: Comparative Analysis of Sydney, Barcelona, and Prague” by Jiří Hasman and Ivana Křížková, which tests the theories of spatial and segmented assimilation through a comparative analysis of three different immigration cities. The paper is based on a detailed investigation of the spatial distribution of all major migration groups in these cities, using modern quantitative methods such as spatial autocorrelation or spatial relatedness assessment of migration groups. The results of the analyses showed that when assessing the spatial incorporation of immigrants, it is necessary to take into account not only the specificities of individual migration groups and destination cities, but also their interaction.
