Are "ghettos" a problem for integration of migrants in Denmark? Flows, consequences and the impact of policies (GHET-IN)
The project aims to elaborate and clarify the understanding of the associations between place and mental health by applying visual GIS analyses as well as advanced statistical models.
Rolf Lyneborg Lund is part of this Swedish project funded by the Swedish Research Council. The project focus on understanding society through register-based machine learning (ML). Rolf has developed an algorithm to use on neighborhood classifications, using a combination of satellite imagery and register data.
Living on the Edge seeks to explore the risks, ressources, resilience and relocations of small settlements on Agger Tange in western Jutland from the period c. 1750-1900.
The goal of the Neighborhood AI project is to explore the use of machine learning and general artificial intelligence in neighborhood research by combining computer vision with neural networks. The aim is to better understand the connection between the perceived environments and the social life within neighborhoods.
FLOW addresses the situation in which “global challenges regarding for instance climate, inequality and armed conflicts cause many people to wish to seek better living conditions in new countries -and the movements constitute challenges locally, nationally and globally” (reference text).
The FamilyTies project has been designed to make a decisive contribution to a much more comprehensive explanation of internal migration and its labour-market outcomes than current, mainly economic, explanations have achieved thus far. By introducing a novel perspective on internal migration and immobility, the ‘family ties perspective’, this ERC project aims to identify the role of family ties in internal migration, immobility and labour-market outcomes.
Inequality is rising across Europe; manifesting itself as socioeconomic differences between neighbourhoods, between cities and regions. This makes it pertinent to investigate the multiple ways in which location matters – not only in terms of life chances for the individual, but also in terms of the systematic way that topological differences map onto social differences characterizing variations in collective conditions of social and material well-being, as well as health inequalities (Maijer et al. 2013).
