Ethnic Power in Metropolises: Local Channels and Responses

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 08:30-10:20
RC21 Regional and Urban Development (host committee)

Language: English

This session focusses upon the ethnic communities and their contact channels in the host community and how these enable ongoing connection with their countries of origin. In this session, we would like to examine and discuss the effects of ethnic power upon the host communities and their responses in the transnational context through looking at their channels of socio-economic connection in the different societies.
