The Impact of Economic Crisis on Local Immigrant Policies: Evidence from European Cities 

This mini-symposium offers an insight into the relationship between city-level immigrant policies and economic crisis in Western Europe. It provides a range of historical and contemporary examples and considerations, and introduces an empirical case study of the Italian city of Turin. It contributes to a research framework that showcases how and to what extent cities’ migration, integration and diversity policies change as a consequence of an economic slump. In doing so, it recognises the local dimension of immigrant policies, whilst also acknowledging the importance of a multi-level governance perspective.
