People Like Us: A 1 Day Conference

Cathie Marsh Centre for Census and Survey Research invites to attend a 1 Day Conference "People Like Us", which will be held on Friday, April 16, 2010, at Manchester Conference Centre. 

This free to attend conference will examine and discuss the origins and implications of ethnic concentration, or ethnic density. Four sessions will cover key topics, each with two papers, a response from a discussant and plenty of time for broader discussion among the conference attendees, who will include academics and those working in the policy arena from central and local government and from NGOs.

In addition, posters covering other pieces of relevant research will be shown throughout the day. Click here if you would like to submit a proposal to show a poster.

The conference is organised by CCSR and ISC at the University of Manchester, the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, UCL, and the Department of Health Sciences, University of York. Some of the conference funding and several of the papers are drawn from two research projects, one funded by the Medical Research Council and the other by the Economic and Social Research Council.
