The combination of increased migration, new technologies, and growing wealth have changed the face of Europe: today, one in ten Europeans was born outside the continent. The processes for incorporating these immigrants vary widely from city to city and nation to nation, and even from one institution within a city to another. This collection offers a comprehensive overview of the state of scholarship on all those approaches and their effectiveness, bringing current theory and practice together to analyze problems and debates in the field.
