Abstract [en]

International migrants often occupy subordinate positions inthe labour market or are excluded from it. Based on unique longitudinaldata, this article investigates the socioeconomic mobility ofthe foreign-born adult population in two Swedish cities in theperiod 1993—2002. Patterns of entrance, exit and exclusionpertaining to the labour of foreign-born and native-born populationsare compared, focusing on variations between ‘distressed’neighbourhoods and surrounding city-regions. The results revealthat the foreign-born population experiences a high labour turnover,generally with increasing employment stability, but that considerablevulnerability still remains. However, surprisingly small differenceswere found between residents of ‘distressed’ andother neighbourhoods. Hence, ethnic rather than residentialstatus influenced the employment situation of foreign-born adultsin Swedish cities.
