Abstract

The relationship between migration policies and crises is a topic with historical poignancy, current relevance and future implications. European cities are currently at a historical juncture for governing local diversity in the context of the Global Economic Crisis and the decline of established political parties. Many cities have built up expertise to reform migration and integration politics, and have introduced new concepts of diversity and interculturality, yet are faced with an increasing number of residents with a migration background affected by unemployment, homelessness and poverty.
