Who needs integration? Debating a central, yet increasingly contested concept in migration studies

Research output: Contribution to JournalEditorialAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Integration is a pivotal concept in migration studies. Yet, over time critiques have been formulated that question the very assumptions that the concept of integration rests on. Willem Schinkel, one of the major criticasters explains what is wrong with the concept. Is it that bad? Some of his discussants believe yes, but offer alternative conceptualizations as way out, whilst others believe the critique is unjustified and write in defense of integration.
