Uneven urban geographies of different immigrant or ethnic groups have received ampleattention across the world; however in Southern Europe the picture is as yet unclear. MostSouthern European countries recently experienced a new phase in their modern historybecause they became net immigrant receivers after having been net ‘deliverers’ of migrants formany decades. This opens the question what direction this migration will take and what theimplications for the segregation in cities will be. One of the crucial questions in that respect iswhat the implications will be for the functioning of the housing market. Will some parallelsdevelop with what occurred in Northern Europe? Or will there be a development with an owncharacter. In this article we aim to contribute to answering these questions through acomparison of the segregation and housing relation in the cities of Amsterdam and Barcelona.
