Does ethnic concentration influence gender role views? A study across ethnic groups in England and Wales

The Migration Policy Centre has just published a working paper which explores one of the possible mechanisms behind the persistence of traditional gender role views among migrants and their children in the UK (i.e. ethnic minority groups): neighbourhood ethnic concentration. Neighbourhoods are spaces of interaction, as well as of transmission of beliefs and ways of doing, and this can affect individuals more or less coercivel. Research shows that, though gender role views become less traditional over time and through the generations, differences with respect to the majoritarian white population remain.
