Europe’s White Working Class Communities, a research series published by the Open Society Foundations, documents the experiences of ‘white’ communities in six cities across Europe. Each report focuses on a specific district or neighborhood within a city.
It provides new groundbreaking research on the experiences of a section of the population whose lives are often caricatured and whose voices are rarely heard in public debates on integration, social cohesion, and social inclusion. Through a comparative lens, the project seeks to highlight parallels and differences in policies, practices, and experiences across the European cities.
The first city report is White Working Class Communities in Manchester.
