Abstract

The ‘local turn’ in immigrant integration has become a widely accepted phenomenon over the last 15 years. Cities, but increasingly also regions and Bundesländer, have taken over an active role in the governance of immigrant integration, not seldom challenging national approaches. Nevertheless, the drivers of the increased engagement of local actors in immigrant integration governance remain unexplored. This panel brings together papers shedding new light on the local engagement in immigrant integration by evaluating the role of various local actors in accommodating refugees, asylum seekers and undocumented persons, but also by questioning the role of the local level for mobile EU citizens and the challenges for them stemming from Brexit.
