Foundations of Complex Systems


Modified Schelling segregational modeling of multiethnic societies and migration

In the last five years there has been a marked increase in the migration flows in the countries of the western world. This increase has led, in many cases, in the empowerment of xenophobic and nativist political forces, and an active conversation regarding the compatibility, integration, and conflict of different civilizations and cultures. In this study we investigate the effect of various cognitive and cultural factors in the integration of new populations in a society during a number of generations. We use agent-based modeling and an extended version of the Schelling segregation model.
