Abstract:

The integration of migrants is an important and desirable step in the immigration process. Both countries of origin and destination can gain from greater integration and diaspora engagement. Although rarely acknowledged, countries of origin have a role to play in integration. The important conditions for this win-win situation are correct definition of the target group and noncontroversial policy areas suitable for intervention.
