Integration of migrants in middle and small cities and in rural areas in Europe

Dr Jean-Pierre Gauci

This report on the 'Integration of migrants in middle and small cities and in rural areas in Europe', authored by Arthur Watts Senior Research Fellow Jean-Pierre Gauci, was commissioned by the 'Commission for Citizenship, Governance, Institutional and External Affairs of the European Committee of the Regions (CIVEX).

This report explores the context in which, and the structures through which, integration measures are implemented and the nature of the actions being undertaken by medium and small cities across Europe. This research shows a relatively positive attitude by many of the cities examined to actively engage with migration generally and integration in particular. Migration is seen as a way to address some of the existing demographic and other challenges of the city and integration provides a way towards ensuring that migrants and refugees are actively contributing to their new homes.
