TITLE Social Relationships Within and Between Ethnic Groups DESCRIPTION In multi-ethnic societies such as Canada, social relationships within and between ethnic groups play important roles in the social, political, and labour market fortunes of groups and their members. This session can include (1) research on how, and to what extent, members of different groups form strong and/or weak ties in their own groups and to outside groups, and, (2) research on how ties to one’s own group and/or to other groups affect key outcomes such as cultural assimilation, civic engagement, or success in labour markets.
