Edited by Marco Martiniello and Jan Rath

Amsterdam University Press

Migratory movements combined with new technologies and growing wealth have changed the face of Europe. One in ten Europeans today is foreign-born. Despite EU integration, policies and processes for incorporating these immigrants, and their children and grandchildren, have remained mainly in the national policy domain. They, moreover, vary widely from nation to nation, and often from city to city within nations. This third instalment of the IMISCOE Textbook series offers an authoritative overview of the state of scholarship on approaches to the study of immigrant incorporation, bringing current theory and practice together to analyse problems and debates in this growing field.

IMISCOE Research Network moves to Erasmus University Rotterdam


The coordination of the IMISCOE network has moved to Erasmus University on April 1st. To celebrate the transfer, a minisymposium was held on March 27th on the future research agenda of IMISCOE. Amongst others Rainer Baubock, Rinus Penninx, Elizabeth Collett, Izabela Grabowska-Luwinska, Andreas Pott, Marco Martiniello and Pieter Bevelander shed their light on future opportunities for the network. The event was opened by the Rector Magnificus of Erasmus, Prof.dr. Huibert Pols. Rotterdam’s Deputy Mayor Korrie Louwes concluded the event with kind words on the cooperation of policy and academia in the areas of migration and integration.

The transfer to Erasmus University was formalised during a special Board of Directors meeting on March 28th. The new Network Office in Rotterdam will be led by Maurice Crul (director) and Peter Scholten (Associate Director). Cees Jochemsen, Warda Belabas and Karin Milovanovic will be the new network officers.




IMISCOE announces association with the journal Comparative Migration Studies


The IMISCOE Board of Directors has decided to enter an association with the journal Comparative Migration Studies. Given the importance of journal publications to the development of migration and integration studies, this association adds an important component to the publication strategy of IMISCOE. Furthermore, the association with this journal once again confirms the commitment of IMISCOE to promoting Open Access publishing. Given the developments in funding schemes like Horizon 2020 and in academic citation indexes, IMISCOE expects the demand for OA publishing to increase significantly over the coming years.

The journal Comparative Migration Studies was launched in 2013 as the first open access journal in the field of migration and integration studies. The journal encourages comparative and interdisciplinary work, in a way that is very similar to the IMISCOE network which confirms the strength of the new association. For more information on the journal, see

More details about the association will be announced soon, including a waiver of author-pays contributions for IMISCOE members. For more information on IMISCOE's publication strategy, click here.
