By bringing together unique empirical research on mainstreaming in the UK, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Poland and the EU, and theoretical reflections from various perspectives on the notion of mainstreaming, including gender and disability mainstreaming, migration- and policy literature, this book aims to contribute to the empirical and theoretical understanding of mainstreaming. In the conclusions to this book we reflect on some of the main empirical findings, such as the notion of incomplete mainstreaming, the differences between mainstreaming on the local and national level and the use of proxy policies. Bringing these findings together we reflect on the expectations that were formulated at the beginning of this book on inter alia mainstreaming in a superdiverse context and mainstreaming’s answer to the dilemma of recognition.
