This special issue of the Revue Européenne des Migrations Internationales turns a critical eye to the reception of exiles outside cities and metropolis, in “small immigration localities”. These “small localities” are places where the general population is small, or very small compared to the nearest metropolises. Here, ethnic minorities and populations of immigrant origin are few, as are the requisite support services and employment opportunities. Featuring research from various disciplines — sociology, political science, anthropology, and geography — this issue offers empirical work analyzing national dispersal policies and the potential repercussions for exiles and their new host territories. This lens makes it possible to examine the political conditions under which these policies are implemented in France, as well as in Italy, in the United Kingdom and in Canada. It also provides an understanding of the initiatives taken up by local elected officials and providers of social housing working to revitalize the territories in question, and of the forms of social work and activism aimed at welcoming exiles. Finally, it allows for the effects of such dispersion on the migratory routes of exiles to be taken into account. This special issue thus offers an analysis of how these dispersal policies, aligned as they are with policies calculated to revitalize territories facing major demographic and economic challenges, articulate processes of sheltering and ever-increasing control of exiled populations.

This journal aims to publish both empirical and theoretical research work on different subjects which take into account international migration and inter-ethnic relationships. While it favors the geographical area of Europe, the journal is open to other areas and other migratory systems throughout the world. Read more...
