Strategic direction for migration policy
Policymakers across Western-Europe have grappled with how to respond to the increasing diversity in cities, towns and neighbourhoods, resulting in a plethora of policy initiatives, some more effective than others. This book shows what could work. It brings together a large amount of research and provides evidence-based policy recommendations. For policymakers, this book offers both a sense of strategic direction and more specific, actionable advice. The report is broad in that it covers many different policy areas that touch on issues of diversity, from immigration policy to education and labour policy. It will be of benefit to all those making policy for a country of immigration.
Springer Book Series: Research for Policy
In this series, we publish internationally relevant studies of the Netherlands Scientiﬁc Council for Government Policy. Many of the cross-cutting issues that affect Dutch policymaking, also challenge other Western countries or international bodies. By publishing these studies in this international open access scientiﬁc series, we hope that our analyses and insights can contribute to the policy debate in other countries.
