Integration starts at neighbourhood level

Several people in Italy were injured in violent protests on the weekend against plans to take in refugees. Giovanna Zincone, president of the Forum of International and European Research on Migration, explains in the liberal daily La Stampa how the US community building model can aid the successful integration of the refugees: "The importance of local realities is becoming increasingly obvious. They are the touchstone for political strategies. What counts are the micro-strategies of integration; intervention at neighbourhood level. … Perhaps the community building strategy should be pursued to create communities with positive goals. … Turning desperate and angry neighbourhoods into communities is just one piece of the puzzle in a far larger undertaking: not that of primarily integrating only refugees, but all Italians."
