Read Abstract

 

Jan Rath received his MA degree in cultural anthropology and urban studies and his PhD from Utrecht University. He is Professor of Urban Sociology in the Department of Sociology, and Researcher in the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies (IMES) and the Center for Urban Studies (CUS) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). He is also the Chair of Metropolis International, an associate of the World Economic Forum, and a member of the Advisory Board of the Centre on Migration, Policy, and Society (COMPAS) at the University of Oxford.

Jan has been an advisor to a wide array of local, national and supranational governmental organisations and civic society institutions, including the European Commission (notably DG Enterprise and Industry), the OECD, the OSCE, and the United Nations (notably the IOM, UNHCR, UNCTAD, and the Population Division).

Jan's research focuses on how the urban opportunity structure, particularly its political, economic and symbolic dimensions, shapes life chances and social relations, and vice versa. He has published extensively on migrant entrepreneurship and local economies and is currently conducting research on commercial gentrification and the proliferation of middle-class amenities, cultural consumption and new urban forms.
