PROSINT – Promoting Sustainable Policies for Integration

 

Research Team: Professor Eleonore Kofman, Alessio D’Angelo, Dr Elena Vacchelli

 The PROSINT project has examined re-configurations of integration policymaking in a number of European countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK) in the past decade or so. Some of the most recent trends include the linkage of integration policy with admission policy, the increasing use of obligatory integration measures and integration conditions in admission policy, and  integration policymaking being  increasingly influenced by European developments, both through vertical (more or less binding regulations, directives etc.) and through horizontal processes (policy learning between states) of policy convergence. The project also compared policy making in selected cities in the countries under study.
