Based on a qualitative analysis deploying observation and in-depth interviews, this research investigates asylum seekers and refugees’ integration, intended as a multi-dimensional process aimed at personal autonomy and influenced by both functional and relational aspects. In accordance with already existing literature, the study analyses the urban dimension of integration processes focusing on the city of Milan as a privileged observation point from which to deepen the understanding of the horizontal dynamics of asylum governance. Indeed, the main aim of the research is to observe what happens beyond and alongside the Italian institutional reception system and official national policies. More specifically, the study explores the way in which different collective actors of the civil society organize their support to asylum seekers and refugees, approaching the subject from three different, but interconnected levels: the internal functioning and approaches specific to the different observed actors, the relationships existing among them and with public authorities and the impact that their actions have on asylum seekers and refugees’ integration processes.

Abstract

Based on a qualitative analysis deploying observation and in-depth interviews, this research investigates asylum seekers and refugees’ integration, intended as a multi-dimensional process aimed at personal autonomy and influenced by both functional and relational aspects. In accordance with already existing literature, the study analyses the urban dimension of integration processes focusing on the city of Milan as a privileged observation point from which to deepen the understanding of the horizontal dynamics of asylum governance. Indeed, the main aim of the research is to observe what happens beyond and alongside the Italian institutional reception system and official national policies. More specifically, the study explores the way in which different collective actors of the civil society organize their support to asylum seekers and refugees, approaching the subject from three different, but interconnected levels: the internal functioning and approaches specific to the different observed actors, the relationships existing among them and with public authorities and the impact that their actions have on asylum seekers and refugees’ integration processes.
