1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The research project analyses segregation in Rio and São Paulo using detailed occupation categories derived from the French "catégories socioprofessionnelles", giving a fine grain description of the complete social structure instead of the exclusive focus on the poor which characterize many Brazilian studies of segregation. The first part of the presentation will present the results for socioeconomic segregation, comparing with Paris. The second part will discuss ethno-racial segregation and its interaction with socioeconomic segregation in Rio and São Paulo.
