Abstract
  • In this thesis, I explore the relationship between immigration, air pollution, and environmental justice in the Spanish context. I survey the policies and social forces that contribute to segregation in cities such as Madrid and Barcelona which can lead immigrants to be exposed to higher concentrations of air pollution. Specifically, I show that discrimination in the labor market and social marginalization drive immigrants to areas with elevated levels of nitrogen dioxide.
