Om Cities and Labour Immigration
Using a unique analytical framework based on hoststranger relations, this book explores the response of cities to the arrival and settlement of labour immigrants. Comparing the local policies of four cities Paris, Amsterdam, Rome and Tel Aviv Michael Alexander charts the development of migrant policies over time and situates them within the broader social context.Grounded in multi-city, multi-domain empirical findings, the work provides a fuller understanding of the interaction between cities and their migrant populations. Filling a gap in existing literature on migrant policy between national-level theorizing and local-level study, the book will provide an important basis for future research in the area.
