Ny artikel: A Local Dimension of Integration Policies? A Comparative Study of Berlin, Malmö, and Rotterdam
Min nya artikel, A Local Dimension of Integration Policies? A Comparative Study of Berlin, Malmö, and Rotterdam, som jag skrivit tillsammans med Rianne Dekker, Bernhard Krieger och Peter Scholten, är nu tillgänglig på International Migration Reviews hemsida.
This study examines three theses on local integration policies by a qualitative comparative case study of integration policies in three cities in three different countries (Berlin, Malmö, and Rotterdam). We found little evidence of a congruent local dimension of integration policies. Local policies resemble their national policy frameworks fairly well in terms of policy approaches and domains. Our multi-level perspective shows that this is not the result of top-down hierarchical governance, but rather of a multilevel dynamic of two-way interaction. Local policy legacies and local politics matter and national policies are also influenced by local approaches of integration.
