Cities have always been shaped by a range of migratory processes and have historically been at the centre of reflections on human mobility. Nevertheless, in recent years scholars and policy makers have increasingly turned their attention to the urban dimension of migration in response to the intensification and diversification of links between migration and cities. Drawing on examples from a range of localities from Europe and the global South, this chapter provides guidelines and caveats for navigating the migration-city nexus and surveys recent research in three key areas: migration and urban economies; the settlement and spatial distribution of migrants in cities; and the local dimension of migration governance.

Abstract

Cities have always been shaped by a range of migratory processes and have historically been at the centre of reflections on human mobility. Nevertheless, in recent years scholars and policy makers have increasingly turned their attention to the urban dimension of migration in response to the intensification and diversification of links between migration and cities. Drawing on examples from a range of localities from Europe and the global South, this chapter provides guidelines and caveats for navigating the migration-city nexus and surveys recent research in three key areas: migration and urban economies; the settlement and spatial distribution of migrants in cities; and the local dimension of migration governance.
