Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to analyze the discrepancies between certain aspects of living conditions of ethnic Danes and immigrants in Copenhagen. Copenhagen is quite prosperous and fares well in the globalized economy but is at the same time experiencing increasing poverty and ethnic segregation. Differences in income have increased spatial segregation in Copenhagen in terms of housing and education. This segregation is most visible in relation to highly educated Danes and immigrants from non-Western countries. The article first examines poverty at household level and its spatial dimensions. Secondly, it considers other living conditions (for example social networks). Thirdly, it explores immigrants’ experiences of, among other things, education, employment and citizenship. It concludes that social cohesion in Copenhagen may be threatened if this segregation continues.

Abstract [fr]

Le présent article a pour but d’analyser les différences entre certains aspects desconditions de vie de groupes ethniques danois et immigrants à Copenhague, une ville assez prospère et bien classée dans l’économie mondiale mais qui en vient de plus en plus à pâtir de pauvreté et de ségrégation raciale. Les écarts de revenus ont conduit à une croissance de la ségrégation spatiale à Copenhague en matière de logement et d’éducation. Cette ségrégation est plus marquée entre les danois les plus qualifiés et les immigrants de pays non occidentaux. L’article se penche en premier lieu sur la pauvreté au niveau des foyers et de leurs dimensions spatiales. En deuxième lieu, il aborde d’autres conditions de vie (les réseaux sociaux, par exemple). En troisième lieu, il examine, entre autres, les expériences au niveau de l’éducation, de l’emploi et de la citoyenneté. Il en conclut que si la ségrégation perdure, la cohésion sociale à Copenhague pourrait être menacée.

Abstract [pt]

O presente artigo tem como objetivo a análise das discrepâncias entre alguns aspetos das condições de vida de grupos étnicos dinamarqueses e imigrantes em Copenhaga, uma cidade bastante próspera e bem posicionada em termos da economia global, mas que, recentemente, tem vindo a experimentar cada vez mais a pobreza e a segregação racial. As discrepâncias de rendimentos levaram a um aumento da segregação espacial em Copenhaga em termos de habitação e educação. Tal segregação é mais patente em relação aos dinamarqueses mais qualificados e aos imigrantes de países não ocidentais. O artigo analisa, em primeiro lugar, a pobreza a nível dos agregados familiares e as suas dimensões espaciais. Em segundo lugar, aborda outras condições de vida (as redes sociais, por exemplo). Em terceiro lugar, explora as experiências a nível de educação, emprego e cidadania, entre outros. Conclui-se que, a manter-se a segregação, a coesão social em Copenhaga poderá estar ameaçada.
