About the Project
This project will explore the dynamics of neighbourhood ethnic and racial mixing in a ‘post-conflict’ society. Northern Ireland has seen a slow but steady growth of diversity in recent years, and there is much to be learned about the extent and nature of residential mixing between established and emerging ethnic, racial, and religious groups. The specific focus of the project will be finalised by the supervisor and successfully appointed PhD researcher, but core issues to be considered include, for example: levels of, and opportunities for, inter-ethnic mixing in neighbourhoods, and differences in how these are shaped and experienced; diversity within socio-spatial networks and how these have changed over time and/or differ between ethnic groups and generations; the extent to which religious/communal segregation in NI may influence new forms of inter-group mixing. There is flexibility in how this project would be undertaken, and applications are welcome from candidates comfortable with quantitative, qualitative, and/or mixed methodological approaches.
