Abstract

In a context of increasing diversification of European societies, the policies adopted by national, supranational, regional and local actors in the field of migration and immigrant integration have started to receive significant academic and societal salience. Superdiversity has thus become not only a key social process, but also a crucial concept that gained increasing scholarly attention since Steven Vertovec first introduced it. While different layers (race, class, gender, etc.) of diversity exist often in a closely interconnected manner, the governance of contemporary superdiversity across European democracies still reveals important challenges that remain to be tackled by policy-makers. It also opens new windows of opportunity on how the current institutional framework governing immigration and immigrant policies can be further improved. This panel aims to provide a critical and in-depth reflexion on these challenges and opportunities by closely examining societal and political responses to superdiversity. In particular, we welcome papers dealing primarily (but not exclusively) with priority research areas such as:
