"This conceptual paper is intended to create the framework for implementing a proposed project, involving cooperation
between local and regional actors in the area of integration policy at the local level. The paper first analyses the meaning of the term â€˜integrationâ€™ and locates it in the context of other concepts prominent in the discourse on immigrant integration.
Integration is understood as the process of inclusion of immigrants in the institutions and relationships of the host
society. The question of integrating immigrants into a country is framed primarily at the level of the nation state. Such an approach makes sense in terms of formulating policies, creating legal and administrative frameworks and for collecting and disseminating statistical data. In practice, however, integration takes place in a specific local context. This paper, therefore, goes on to discuss several areas relevant to integration policy at the local level and how they relate to the analytical concept of integration; possible target groups for such policies are also named. Since the local level plays an important role in implementing integration policy, and contributing to its shaping, the opportunities and limitations of integration policies at the local level and the interconnectedness of the levels are discussed."
