Karen Jacobsen and Charles Simpson co-edited a Special Issue on refugee urban integration with MDPI
In 2019 Karen Jacobsen and Charles Simpson co-edited a Special Issue on refugee urban integration with MDPI featuring an article from one of the Refugees In Towns researches from Belgrade, Serbia.
In this Special Issue, Karen and Charles invited papers—particularly by refugees or local citizens living in migrant-hosting towns—that explore urban integration. Karen and Charles posed questions such as: In your experience, how have refugees and citizens interacted in your town? What has been the role of town officials and politicians in enabling or obstructing integration? What has been the social, economic, and cultural impact of migration on the town, and how have locals responded?
