The Integrationist Paradigm: Discourses on Immigrant Integration Across Policy and Research

Principal investigator Iva Dodevska (Principal Investigator)
This project examines the knowledge production on immigrant integration across research and policy in the European context. Two case studies (one national – the UK, and one supranational – the EU) of political and policy discourses on integration are investigated in their interrelations with academic discourses in elite migration and integration academic publications in order to unpack the coproduction, between policy and research, of the integrationist paradigm in Europe. Key questions are how “integration” is imagined by various social actors, how it produces migrant subjectivities and what is the role of epistemic communities in the politicization of diversity. Interested primarily in integrationism as a technique of power, the project takes a decolonial and genealogical approach that situates integrationist discourses within wider systems of hierarchy, notably the racial order, patriarchy and capitalism. The aim is to understand how the politics of integration research and the scientific claims in “evidence-based” policy intersect to produce integrationism as the only legitimate mode of managing migration-related diversity.
