The current EU basic law does not give the Union the power to issue legislative acts aimed at harmonizing national rules for the integration of immigrants.

I systematize legal instruments for immigrant integration, analyse the conditions of the system formation, emphasize trends in the policy development, and examine the formation ...
Migration attractiveness of the coastal zone of Russia’s North-West: local gradients

Push and pull factors are enormously diverse in the area, as are migration flows forming attraction poles for migrants. There is little research on the issue despite its social and practical significance. Thus, research is required to examine how the coastal factor can benefit the migration attractiveness and human resources of Russian coastal territories of ...

The authors analyse major irregular migration routes and show that their use cannot be always explained by using traditional demographic approaches. There is also a difference in the proportion of migrants by country, although settlement systems are very similar. Even with decades spent in the destination country, the Muslim population remains poorly integrated into the local community and its effect on the latter is insignificant (Turks in Germany)....
