The Local Dimension of Migration Policymaking
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
This book prompts a fresh examination of immigrant integration policies. Revealing just how immigrants and their receiving societies interact in everyday life, the contributors show how societal inclusion operates at a local level. The studies included here focus on three issue areas of migration policy—citizenship, welfare services, and religious diversity—and consider urban policies and realities in different national contexts. Spanning Switzerland, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, and Canada, the case studies display great variety in their theoretical and methodological approaches and lay the foundations for future migration policy research.
