The Impact of Residential Segregation on the Development of Social Capital and Social Mobility of Immigrants: The Example of the Mexican Population in the West Side of St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.

Dick, Eva.

Although US studies on segregation have mostly focused on black/white segregation, such a binary view is no longer adequate due to the increasingly multicultural reality of U.S. cities and the increase in immigrants from Latin and South America. Eva Dick, a visiting Ph.D. student from the University of Dortmund in Germany, conducted a research project as part of her dissertation work focused on St. Paul's West Side, which has a large Latino population, to shed light on the impact of residential segregation on immigrant groups. The study results suggest that the impact of residential segregation on the development of social capital and social mobility is greatly contingent on individual characteristics, as well as on conditions of the neighborhood and overall social and political framework.
