Hackett, S (2018) 'Learning from history: city governance of migration and diversity in Britain and Germany.' In: Scholten, P, Caponio, T and Zapata-Barrero, R, eds. Routledge handbook on the governance of migration and diversity in cities. Routledge, Abingdon. (Forthcoming)

Abstract

This chapter offers an insight into city-level immigrant policies in Britain and Germany across the post-1960s period. Drawing upon four city case studies, Berlin, Bremen, Leicester and Newcastle upon Tyne, it exposes the extent to which local governance of migration and diversity has been shaped by cities' migration histories. It shows how city authorities have often looked to the past for examples, lessons and inspiration, and how history has continued to play a role in shaping immigrant policies.
