Susanne Søholt is a political scientist. During the last years she has been working with migration, integration and segregation in urban and rural areas. The main focus has been on integration and segregation in the housing market, but also in neighbourhoods and in the labour market. Søholt is concerned with the different conditions for all categories of immigrants including asylum seekers, as well as the relationship between minorities and the majority.
