The Integration of Immigrants in European Societies

National Differences and Trends of Convergence

European societies have become immigration countries. The illusion of temporary immigration has disappeared, new groups of people have to be integrated. What policies of integration are being implemented in Europe?

Researchers from eight different European countries write about the mode of integration in their respective nations. Is there a national mode of integration that could serve as a model for other countries or the European Union? The book offers an answer to this important question.
