The research directly addresses a major challenge for contemporary urban policy: rising inequality and segregation in urban areas. The research examines residential segregation and mobility of foreign citizens with innovative methods and previously unexplored data, which deepens our understanding of residential segregation and its effects on social inclusion. The research has three objectives. The first objective is to examine residential segregation via an innovative method using individual scalable neighbourhoods in Czechia. The second objective is to examine the residential mobility of significant minorities with respect to location, age, gender, and housing. The third objective is to delve into the role of neighbourhood contexts shaping residential behaviour. All significant minorities in Czechia are analysed in the project. The proposed research goes beyond common approaches applied so far in migration research in Czechia and it offers evidence-based insights into contemporary urban change.

The share of foreigners in individualised neighbourhoods in the Czech Republic 2015: a multi-scale approach.
Basic trends in the deployment of foreigners in the Czech Republic 2008-2015: Residential segregation from the perspective of individualized neighbourhoods of various size, by Martin Šimon, Ivana Křížková, Adam Klsák, Renáta Mikešová and Yana Leontiyeva
This article reports on a new empirical study evaluating crime concentration at places in a postsocialist city. We use principles of the law of crime concentration at places and the Cambridge Crime Harm Index to measure crime count and crime harm concentration at the level of street segments. The research found differences between crime concentration in a post-socialist city and crime concentration reported by recent studies from US or UK cities.
Immigration is one of the most contentious fields of contemporary European urban policy. While the development of urban segregation is well documented in traditional immigration countries with population register data, there is a lack of detailed research on population dynamics in many countries and cities across Europe. This article examines ethnic residential segregation in Czechia in the period after the economic crisis of 2008.
The aim of this text is to describe and compare the residential segregation of foreigners in Prague and Central Bohemian region in years 2012–2018. The distribution of foreigners is measured using a new method of individualized scalable neighbourhoods. This method allows to compare the distribution of minority and majority population on multiple scales and does not depend on the statistical-administrative division of the territory.
Příspěvek se zaměřuje na stěhování a rezidenční mobilitu cizinců v Praze a Středočeském kraji, kde se soustředí značná část cizinecké populace Česka. Na základě kombinace dvou zdrojů dat ukazuje, že vzhledem ke specifickým prostorovým vzorcům pobytu a pohybu mají cizinci nezanedbatelnou roli v procesu utváření sociálně-prostorové struktury regionu.
Immigrant incorporation in cities is often explained using the theories of spatial and segmented assimilation, which differ, among other things, in their approach to the spatial aspects of incorporation. However, empirical evidence about immigrant spatial incorporation from both theories is ambiguous, since most case studies focus on a single location and a limited number of immigrant groups, which hampers their external validity.
Perspectives on migrant integration differ by time and place. This article examines this vague concept to shed light on how its evolution over time has shaped the current conceptions of migrant integration in the EU and the Czech Republic. It describes the situation in the Czech Republic and the country's normative goals in the field of migrant integration. While the country has explicit integration priorities in place, there is no evaluation of their fulfilment.
In the last three decades, Karlovy Vary has been the main destination for Russians in Czechia (besides Prague) in terms of residential, investment and tourist attractiveness. This has affected many aspects of its life. Presence of foreign inhabitants, businessmen and tourists change the composition of the population according to citizenship, property structure of real estates, their physical condition and use, or international tourism and the related orientation of local economic activities.
