Today, the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre Governance of Migration and Diversity (GMD) released their new book De migratiesamenleving: Migratie en diversiteit als gordiaanse knoop. Authored by Reinhout Kleinhans (TU Delft), Mark van Ostaijen (EUR), and Kimberly Seibel (TU Delft), the book boasts a range of relevant topics throughout its chapters.
This book unravels the complexity and interwovenness of migration and migrationrelated diversity through issues about reception of immigrants and refugees, housing, work, education, social security, neighborhood renewal, class migration, and cultural participation. A unique book, drawn on new research, written by authors who look beyond the boundaries of their own disciplines, and offer concrete perspectives for action.
Migration and migration-related diversity are constantly in the spotlight. For example, the 'refugee crises', Black Lives Matter, bed-bad-brood and growing inequality of opportunity present us with 'new' challenges and policy tasks. There is often a lack of insight into the complexity and the deeper social problems that refugees, asylum seekers and migrants are part of. In a permanent crisis mode there are no such things as easy solutions.' - De migratiesamenleving: Migratie en diversiteit als gordiaanse knoop
