Dr. Jon Fox

Jon Fox

Jon is the lead on the project.  He comes to the project from a background on nationalism, racism, and immigration – some of the many things that cause problems for integration.  This has also helped him see how some of these same barriers to integration are also all too often wrapped up in integration discourse and policy.  As a relative newcomer to Bristol (arriving in 2004 from Los Angeles), Jon has had occasion to witness first-hand (and professionally) some of these pitfalls of integration.  His friends and colleagues in local communities and local government across Bristol have inspired him to think collectively about making integration a force for positive change in the city. That’s what this project is about:  to develop a local, bottom-up and inclusive approach to integration for, with, and by Bristol.


Bridget

Bridget Anderson

Bridget Anderson is Director of Migration Mobilities Bristol. Her interests include citizenship, nationalism and immigration enforcement (including ‘trafficking’). Although now an academic, after her undergraduate degree Bridget worked with undocumented migrant domestic workers, and she has worked closely with migrants’ organisations, trades unions and legal practitioners at local, national and international level. This contributes to her scepticism about ‘integration’ which often stigmatises ‘migrants’ and BAME people. She sees this project as an opportunity to learn from the ways that differently excluded people – low waged, disabled, migrant – resist exclusion, and to see how to make connections between them.


David Manley

David is leading the spatial work package. He has a background working on urban problems and trying to understand how the place in which you live impacts your experiences and achievements. He also has a long standing research interest in segregation and exploring how cities develop and what leads to segregation between communities. He has spent a large amount of his work time recently trying to understand how these questions play out in different national contexts beyond the UK, specifically in The Netherlands and Sweden, but also looking at Japan and the US. In the context of this project he is looking forward to unpacking some of the issues related to his work more locally in and around Bristol.

Lindsay Carter

Lindsay Carter

Lindsay helps with the administration of the project. She has a background in academic research, with a PhD in Music and Film, and is interested in the role of art and culture in practices and experiences of integration. Whilst working towards her PhD Lindsay worked in Bristol Central Library where she learned lots about Bristol and Bristolians from the everyday interactions and exchanges that she experienced with people from across the city. This experience taught her much about the benefits of integration as well as some of the barriers faced. Lindsay sees this project as an opportunity to learn more about local, community-led practices of integration in Bristol and to work collaboratively with organisations across the city.
