JUA Virtual Issue Available: Immigration, Ethnicity, and Race in the City

Immigration, ethnicity, and race continue to leave a major imprint on the culture, politics, and economy of cities and their suburbs. Rapid sociodemographic change—which especially impacts urban regions—has once again thrust immigration, ethnicity, and race to the forefront of policy and politics throughout North America and Europe. The articles in this virtual issue explore cutting-edge research on the resiliency of immigrants and ethnic and racial groups, who despite their considerable challenges and struggles, continue to shape and reshape urban and suburban landscapes within cities across the West.

The following, previously published JUA articles are included in this virtual issue and can be accessed without a subscription for a limited time.
