This open access book explores how research and policymaking in the field of migrant integration have developed historically and how this interrelationship plays out in the strongly politicised climate of opinions on migration in Europe. It features interdisciplinary theoretical contributions as well as original empirical studies on research-policy dialogues at both the EU and country level.

The chapters study not only how the dialogue between research and policy is structured (such as advisory bodies, research agencies, and ad-hoc committees), but also how these dialogues affect policymaking and the development of migrant integration research itself as well.

The analysis reveals profound changes in the dialogue structures associated with the research-policy nexus in the domain of migrant integration. On the one hand, dialogue structures have become more ad-hoc, often established in response to distinct political events or to specific problems. On the other, politicisation has not thwarted all efforts to develop more institutionalised dialogue structures between producers and users of knowledge. In addition, research has contributed to policymaking in very different ways in various European countries.

This edited volume is unique in this effort to reflect on the impact of research-policy dialogues both on the development of migrant integration policies as well as on migrant integration research. It will be of importance to scholars in this field as well as to policymakers and other stakeholders involved in migrant integration policymaking.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The volume provides an ambitious and very welcome sociology of knowledge about immigrant integration policy in Europe. Through synthesising and extending existing studies, it offers a very useful set of individual perspectives as well as a systematic overview of national policy dialogues.

Adrian Favell

Professor of Sociology, Sciences Po, Paris

This is one of the most significant books on immigrant integration in Europe. Based on empirical studies, leading scholars provide an up-to-date analysis and comparative approach to many challenging questions about the important role of the research-policy relationship.

Assoc. Professor Ellie Vasta

Macquarie University, Sydney

This collective book addresses the very complex and important issues related to the links between research and policies in the field of immigrant integration in a comprehensive way by privileging a truly European and comparative approach. A must read for students, scholars and policy-makers who are interested in improving the dialogue between the research community and the policy community in the field of migration and integration.
