their educational choices and socioeconomic careers and for their experience in the labour market compared to the importance of the institutionally and spatially embedded educational, socioeconomic and labour market opportunity structures in different urban regions? The study has a long- term perspective (2009- 2015) corresponding to the span of the first three waves of the REMESO CSNsurvey, Capital, Strategies and Networks for Labour Market Careers among Younger People of Immigrant Background (para. 3.2), carried out in the cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö (para. 3.2). In order to complement and to test variations in outcome from the survey parallel analyses will be carried out utilising aggregate register based data from the centre’s LOUISE database (para. 3.1) and employing theories and research methods focused on ‘social capital’ and ‘neighbourhood effects’ developed by REMESO researchers in earlier work (Behtoui 2006; Urban 2005). This will be complemented by focus group and individual interviews, and by surveys of relevant documents. Given its analytical and geographical focus, this project will both benefit from and provide background knowledge for the projects 2.3.1 and 2.3.3 in sub-programme III of the REMESO research agenda. Pursuing a differentiated understanding of the impact of social capital in complex ethnically segmented urban contexts the study follows up questions raised in earlier work by the CWW research group (Schierup, Hansen and Castles 2006, ch. 4; Urban 2005). They are informed by urban studies in the US focusing on the spatial and socioeconomic transformation of cities for the socioeconomic trajectories of ‘racial’ and ethnic minority groups (e.g. Wilson 1997; Sassen 2006; Waldinger 1996). European urban research has emphasised the influence of different welfare regimes on the return to the social capital of urban immigrant groups (Kloosterman 1994; Kloosterman and Rath 2001; Cross and Moore 2002; Musterd and Ostendorf 2002), but also the particular socioeconomic setting of individual cities (‘financial- administrative’, ‘port- industrial’, ‘rust belt’, ‘sun belt’, ‘global’, etc.) responding differently to global pressures (e.g. Lash 1994). Theories of post-national governance have further emphasised the rising autonomy of cities as transnational actors buttressing their comparative regional advantages in the globalised marketplace (Jessop 2002b). As policies for diversity and for the ‘integration’ of the social capital of M&EM in regional and local development partnerships have become a maxim for policies of deliberative ‘multilevel governance’ (see project 2.3.2) this may change the opportunity structure for M&EM in individual cities and their ethnically segmented labour markets. 2.2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
