This is the first European survey that addresses the perspective of people without a migration background living in diverse neighborhoods. The outcomes of the BaM project will be shared using different types of output available on this website and four PhD theses.

  • How the Architecture of Housing Blocks Amplifies or Dampens Interethnic Tensions in Ethnically Diverse Neighbourhoods

    Little research has been done so far in the Netherlands into why ethnic tensions in diverse neighbourhoods occur or, also interesting, why they do not occur. This article analyses the possible influence of the physical environment: How does the architecture of housing blocks and neighbourhoods amplify or dampen ethnic tensions in ethnically diverse neighbourhoods? We use data obtained from the Amsterdam city council for two Amsterdam neighbourhoods, one of which typically features inner-city apartments, and the other is consisting of mainly suburban housing blocks. Although their ethnic composition is almost identical, these neighborhoods show almost opposite outcomes in Amsterdam in terms of social cohesion and ethnic tensions.

  • Measuring the impact of diversity attitudes and practices of people without migration background on inclusion and exclusion in ethnically diverse contexts. Introducing the diversity attitudes and practices impact scales

    Assimilation and integration processes have been studied widely and for many years, mainly by looking at the attitudes and practices of people with migration background. This article focusses on the mirror group: the people without migration background. The authors propose a new model, the Diversity Attitudes and Practices Impact (DAPI) scales, to assess the impact they have on inclusion and exclusion in ethnically diverse contexts.

  • ‘Een samenleving bouw je niet alleen, dat moeten we gezamenlijk doen’

    Er is een nieuw diversiteitsbeleid nodig: all inclusive diversity. Dat betoogt hoogleraar diversiteit en onderwijs Maurice Crul. Hij doet zijn uitspraken in een gefilmd gesprek met Bahram Sadeghi, aan de vooravond van de talkshow van Kennisplatform Integratie & Samenleving (KIS). ‘Iedereen moet verantwoordelijkheid nemen voor de diverse samenleving
