When strangers become neighbours: role of the international actors and local authorities in the process of integration of immigrants through housing policies

Abstract : The purpose of this work is to analyse the role of the international actors and local authorities in the elaboration and implementation of policies of integration of immigrants through housing. Several experiences of failure of integration policies in developed countries make national and local policymakers to create new measures and/or to transfer already existing policies with the aims of helping immigrants to become an integrated part of the host society and to decreasing social tensions. Housing plays an important role in the integration process. Many countries among other policies of integration of immigrants are using social housing, which not only solve existing problems, but also brings new challenges. The examples of Germany and the city of Stuttgart that has been analyzed in the case study show that local authorities play a vital role in the process of integration of immigrants through housing policies and that the best practice examples of integration policies may be transferable with the help of international actors and networks.
