Non-migrants’ and Migrants’ Interethnic Relationships: The Third Party Role of Cohabiting Partners

Considering both non-migrant and migrant couples, this paper studies the effect of cohabiting life partners’ attitudes, resources, and social network compositions on their spouse’s interethnic friendships and acquaintances.
