Integrating integration: a prelude A majority of young men in Germany In the period from 2013 to 2016 there were a variety of media discourses highlighting the number of young male refugees who arrived in Europe. These discourses helped shape the imaginaries of refugees who became racialized and seen as criminal threats to order. The discussion was always framed by who had integrated well and who had not.

The Pacific Islands are loosely sub-divided into cultural and geographic groupings of Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia.

Introduction This chapter aims to illuminate a discord between the general integration discourse in Sweden, the way it is materialised in social work practice, and how young refugees view their own situation in relation to integration and resettlement. Based on a study with 11 so-called ‘unaccompanied female minors’, the chapter illuminates alternative perspectives on what challenges these girls face as they seek to integrate into a new society post transit. Integration (also the Swedish definition of the term) has been criticised for being vague and

17 TWO The concept of solidarity in the European integration discourse Józef Niżnik This chapter is devoted to the concept of solidarity and its role in European integration discourse. I deliberately use the phrase ‘European integration discourse’ rather than ‘discourse about the European Union’, and the reasons for this will become clear once the meaning of the term has been explained. After initial conceptual analysis focused on a general meaning of the concept of solidarity and its possible divergences, I clarify my understanding of a discourse

Introduction In 2016, the proportion of Canada’s foreign-born population surged to 21.9 per cent, amounting to about 3.85 million residents. In response to growing underemployment among immigrants in Canada during the 2000s, the government implemented policies to enhance their integration ( AMSSA, 2017 ; Allan, 2019 ). One such policy initiative promoted volunteering in non-profit organisations to gain ‘Canadian experience’, the lack of which posed a significant barrier to immigrant integration, especially in the labour market ( Government of Canada, 2012
