Abstract

Despite decades of policy and academic focus, integration remains a contested and opaque concept. Yet in recent years with its promise of social cohesion and shared citizenship, it has obtained a morally privileged status in contrast to the political disenchantment now attached to multiculturalism. This chapter presents a case study on public perceptions of integration among migrants and non migrants in two cities within the European Union, Edinburgh and Stockholm.
