My Perfect City: Integration in Rotterdam - BBC World

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Rotterdam is lauded for its policies on integrating immigrant populations into the city. What exactly has it got right?

The second biggest city in The Netherlands is like many port cities. Over the decades it has been a magnet for immigrant workers, whose descendants now number more than 50 percent of the population and tend to live in certain neighbourhoods.

Racial tensions brought the problem of integration to the top of the political agenda. Today, holistic approaches tackle education and employment, as well as quite radical policies on housing.
