International migration governance has been at the top of the international agenda for the last two decades. This volume draws on an international seminar hosted by Migrinter at the University of Poitiers in December 2015. The aim of this event was to launch a discussion between scholars of integration focusing on urban immigration and diversity policies in the North and migration experts working on the relationships between emigrants and their regions of origin in the South. The idea of hosting such an event on international migrations and new local governance came from an ongoing collaboration between the two editors of this book.
