Journal Article
Omar Shahabudin McDoom - Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 2019

A key debate in studies of native-migrant relations relates to the barriers to integration created by ethno-cultural differences and socio-economic disadvantage. How do changes in socio-economic inequality between ethnic groups affect interethnic ties in a divided society? I investigate this...
