After a period of intentional collaboration, the LDE GMD Centre is pleased to announce the release of the new "De migratiesamenleving: Migratie en diversiteit als gordiaanse knoop" book. 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.
Available through Open Access, this collection unravels the complexity and interwovenness of issues about reception, housing, work, education, social security, neighborhood renewal, class migration, and cultural participation. From different perspectives, the authors show how migration and diversity can simultaneously be a problem, challenge, opportunity, solution, cause, and effect. Governance is central to this, in other words, the cooperation between citizens, networks, and organizations at different administrative levels is pivotal. What is unique is that the authors draw on new research, 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, and growing social inequalities. These new phenomena present us with 'new' challenges and policy tasks.
