Whole-COMM at the ECPR General Conference

The responses of the local and regional levels to new migrant settlements were (and still are) influenced by two broad phenomena. On the one hand, the migration issue has become highly politicised, both at the national level but also at the local and regional levels. On the other hand, the challenges posed by the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ and the politicisation of migration led to the involvement of a growing number of (governmental and non-governmental) actors in  ‘local migration governance’ and in migration-related policymaking and implementation.

On August 22, at the ECPR General Conference, we aim to assess the interplays between these key developments, looking at the politics of local and subnational migration policymaking and governance, with a particular focus on small and medium-size towns and rural areas.

Here are the details of the panel:
