Computational modelling of primary school segregation
A research collaboration between the University of Amsterdam and its Institute for Advanced Study, The University of Groningen, The City of Amsterdam and the Dutch School Inspectorate
This research collaboration focuses on uncovering all factors in school segregation and their dynamics, with a specific focus on (parental) school choice.
Development of an agent-based model of school choice and school allocation will enable us to study how potential disruptions (policy interventions, demographic scenarios) affect choice and resulting patterns of school segregation.
The research team is comprised of members from different fields. By studying school choice and school segregation dynamics using an interdisciplinary approach, the team tries to find solutions that surpass the boundaries of the individual fields.
