The chapter considers the interplay between migration and geographical population patterns in Northern Ireland (NI) by considering how far migration acts to mix people with different social and demographic characteristics. It also considers the extent to which existing geographical patterns of segregation limit the possibilities for residential mixing. The main findings are, firstly, that migration is more likely to mix people along the dimension of social segregation than religion; secondly, that more mobile people, like the educated, are more likely to move to different types of area; and thirdly, migration will only act over the long term to increase or reduce social segregation of all types.

Keywords:   selective migration, population sorting, religion, segregation
