  • Immigrant community integration in world cities

    Migrant and hosting communities face long-term challenges in the integration process. Immigrants must adapt to new laws and ways of life, while hosts need to adjust to multicultural societies. Integration impacts many facets of life such as access to jobs, real state and public services and can be well approximated by the extent of spatial segregation of minority group residence. Here we conduct an extensive study of immigrant integration in 53 world cities by using Twitter language detection and by introducing metrics of spatial segregation. In this way, we quantify the Power of Integration of cities (their capacity to integrate diverse cultures), and characterize the relations between cultures when they act in the role of hosts and immigrants. https://arxiv.org/abs/1611.01056

A growing community of Somali immigrant families in St. Cloud, Minn., has presented multiple challenges for local educators who have been grappling with not only how to meet the students' linguistic and educational needs, but also how to create a learning environment where they feel safe and welcome. Confronting anti-Muslim sentiment both inside the district and outside in the broader community has been especially vexing. Most of the Somali community in St. Cloud is Muslim. To help build linguistic and cultural bridges between educators and the Somali community, school district leaders hired Ahmed Hassan and Bishar Hassan. The two Somali brothers, who are bilingual communication support specialists, have duties that range from providing verbal and written translations into Somali and English, advising students, and helping both Somali residents and school district staff members navigate unfamiliar cultural terrain. The brothers are also leaders in St. Cloud's Somali community.

At the moment I'm staying, although I don't know for how long." 17. Wide of bar 18, Various of children "Polonica" school rehearsing nativity play 19. Children singing Polish Christmas carol STORYLINE : Twenty years ago, people were leaving Spain to seek a brighter economic future abroad. Now things have changed and the country is dealing with a new phenomenon: an influx of workers from Eastern Europe. Madrid now has an expanding Polish community, with people arriving from Poland to work in the construction industry, as cleaners and as waitresses. Every Saturday in Acala de Henares, a commuter town east of Madrid, 60 Polish children spend the afternoon learning Polish geography, history and language. "Polonica" was started over ten years ago by a group of Polish immigrants so that their Spanish-born children wouldn't lose touch with their culture and language. "It is very difficult to live without knowing one's roots because you are lost without them," says school manager Iwona Mankowska. "You need contact with your own people to feel valued." The fees of the teachers, who are all Polish, are paid for by the parents, and the children range in age from three to 14 years old. Textbooks are brought back from Poland and paid for by the Parents' Association. According to the Polish Embassy, there are at the moment 12, 500 Poles working in Spain, with the majority in Madrid and Barcelona. Agata Kida, 27, has lived in Madrid for 8 years and works as an estate agent. She earns approximately 600 euros (US$798) a month plus commission. A tourism student from a small village in Poland she realised that her opportunities were limited and decided to come to Spain to learn Spanish and start a new life. She entered Spain on a tourist visa and stayed on. Without legal status she worked illegally and was forced to buy her first job. "I had to buy my first job as a child minder...I thought that this was wrong because it came from a woman who was from the same place as me (a Polish woman)." With the inclusion of Poland in the European Union in 2004, some of the Polish immigrant community decided to return home.
