Arthur Alcolin receives the Bengt Turner Best Paper Award at the ENHR conference

Congratulations to Arthur Acolin, Assistant Professor in Real Estate, who received the Bengt Turner Best Paper Award at the recent European Network for Housing Research (ENHR) conference in Uppsala, Sweden.

The paper, titled “Tenure Trajectories of Immigrants and their Children in France: Between Integration and Stratification”, found that while immigrants are significantly less likely to be homeowners the gap in home-ownership between second generation immigrants and the rest of the population is smaller and not statistically significant. This suggests a progressive integration in the housing market over time and over generations. However, children of immigrants from some countries continue to exhibit a residual home-ownership gap that require specific policies to avoid durable inequalities in access to home-ownership.
