Theorising Integration and Assimilation


Theorising Integration and Assimilation discusses the current theories of integration and assimilation, particularly those focused on the native-born children of immigrants, the second generation. Using empirical research to challenge many of the dominant perspectives on the assimilation of immigrants and their children in the western world in political and media discourse, the book covers a wide range of topics including:

  • transatlantic perspectives and a focus on the lessons to be mutually learnt from American and European approaches to integration and assimilation

  • rich empirical data on the assimilation/integration of second generations in various contexts

  • a new theoretical approach to integration processes in urban settings on both sides of the Atlantic

This volume brings together leading scholars in Migration and Integration Studies to provide a summary of the central theories in this area. It will be an important introduction for scholars, researchers and students of Migration, Integration, and Ethnic Studies.

This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.
