Integration processes in Europe. Two new Open Access publications

24 November 2015

Europe has become a continent of immigration in the course of the last half century, and European societies have experienced growing ethnic and cultural diversity. International and multidisciplinary teams of researchers reflect historically on research-policy dialogues in Europe and on the European Agenda for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals. With contributions from UvA researchers Maria Bruquetas, Jeroen Doomernik, Blanca Garces-Mascarenas, Liza Mügge and Rinus Penninx.

Integrating immigrants in Europe

Integrating Immigrants in Europe. Research-Policy Dialogues

This edited volume explores how research and policymaking in the field of migrant integration have developed historically and how this interrelationship plays out in the strongly politicised climate of opinions on migration in Europe. It features interdisciplinary theoretical contributions as well as original empirical studies on research-policy dialogues at both the EU and country level. This edited volume is unique in this effort to reflect on the impact of research-policy dialogues both on the development of migrant integration policies as well as on migrant integration research. It will be of importance to scholars in this field as well as to policymakers and other stakeholders involved in migrant integration policymaking.

Integration Processes and Policies in Europe

Integration Processes and Policies in Europe. Contexts, Levels and Actors

In this book, experts on integration processes, integration policies, transnationalism, and the migration and development framework provide an academic assessment of the 2011 European Agenda for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals, which calls for integration policies in the EU to involve not only immigrants and their society of settlement, but also actors in their country of origin. Moreover, a heuristic model is developed for the non-normative, analytical study of integration processes and policies based on conceptual, demographic, and historical accounts.
