Getting on in the UK: Migrants, ethnic minorities, networks, social mobility and integration (Birmingham event)

Friday 8 November 2013 (11:00-13:00)

For further information, please contact Ann Bolstridge, IRiS Manager,

You are invited to join us to discuss our recent research findings on:

  • What types of social network do ethnic minorities and refugees possess?
  • Do social networks facilitate social mobility?
  • What is the role of social networks and capital in integration and inclusion?

 This event brings together researchers from two project teams: the Nuffield Foundation funded Refugee Integration, Social Networks and Social Capital project (Birmingham and Cardiff) and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation Poverty, Ethnicity and Social Networks research (Third Sector Research Centre, University of Birmingham) to co-present findings focusing on social network, social media and social capital in minority ethnic and refugee communities.
