Immigrant integration has long been a salient issue for urban communities, municipal officials, and local non-governmental organizations that work with newcomer communities. This two-part panel brings together studies that investigate the local governance of immigrant integration in comparative municipal perspective, with a focus on governance mechanisms between different public entities as well as between public and private entities at the municipal level in the United States, Canada, and Europe. They ask: What are city officials doing to address immigrant integration issues? How does local context influence government narratives and programs of immigrant integration? How do cities participate in larger networks that seek to shape integration policies at the municipal level? How and where does immigrant integration fit in the work of municipal planners? How do local government officials work with non-governmental actors in developing and implementing integration policies and practices? How does the immigrant integration work of government officials in small, more remote municipalities compare with that of officials in big, urban immigrant destinations? The papers in this two-part panel address these important questions using original quantitative and qualitative data, and they draw on literatures and theoretical perspectives in political science, public policy, urban planning, sociology, and anthropology.
