About this book

This open access book explores how contemporary integration policies and practices are not just about migrants and minority groups becoming part of society but often also reflect deliberate attempts to undermine their inclusion or participation. This affects individual lives as well as social cohesion. The book highlights the variety of ways in which integration and disintegration are related to, and often depend on each other. By analysing how (dis)integration works within a wide range of legal and institutional settings, this book contributes to the literature on integration by considering (dis)integration as a highly stratified process. Through featuring a fertile combination of comparative policy analyses and ethnographic research based on original material from six European and two non-European countries, this book will be a great resource for students, academics and policy makers in migration and integration studies.

She holds a European Joint Degree in “International Migration and Social Cohesion” from the University of Amsterdam, the University of Deusto and the University of Osnabrück and a B.A. in Liberal Arts and Sciences from the University College Maastricht.

 

Reinhard Schweitzer is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Department of Political Science at the University of Vienna, where he holds a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship and is part of the research group INEX - The Politics of Inclusion and Exclusion. He recently completed a PhD in Migration Studies at the University of Sussex and is associated with the Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR) in Brighton, UK. His doctoral research focused on the ‘micro-management’ of the contradictions underlying the public provision of healthcare, education and social assistance to migrants living irregularly in London and Barcelona. His current project ‘REvolTURN’ looks at the role and functioning of ‘voluntariness’ within the management of migrant return from Austria and the UK. He also holds an M.A. in Migration Studies/Human Geography, as well as degrees in Political Science and Sociology from the University of Innsbruck, and has spent extensive study and research periods in Santiago de Chile, San José (Costa Rica), Barcelona and London.
