Migration into Southern Europe: new trends and new patterns
This special issue of Studi Emigrazione presents a collection of nine papers on a variety of new immigration phenomena in Southern Europe. Some of the papers refer to individua! countries, even cities; others are comparative. Many of the papers are by young scholars and derive from their recent or ongoing doctoral field research in the region. And several articles are by authors who are, or have been, connected to the Sussex Centre for Migration Research and the Sussex European Institute, both part of the University of Sussex, UK. The methodological approaches range from overviews and interpretations of statistics and policy to ethnographic enquiry at the local level.
Whilst not covering all aspects of the diverse migra tory phenomenon in the region, the papers do collectively attempt to represent some of that diversity, both thematically and with respect to geographical coverage. After two overview papers (King and Ribas-Mateos; BaldwinEdwards) which examine statistics, types and contexts of migration, and policy responses, the sequence of papers moves from Lisbon through Spain (Granada, Barcelona) to Italy and then Greece. Appropriately, given the strongly gendered nature of immigration into Southern Europe, two papers (Dietz and El-Shohoumi; Zontini) explicitly focus on the migration, family, work and intercultural experiences of women.
