Giving Compass’ Take:
· In this report from Migration Policy Institute, Demetrios G. Papademetriou and Meghan Benton focus on rebuilding community after crisis and how to handle different integration challenges brought about by recent mass migration and social change.
· How can philanthropy help with integration and resettlement?
Governments must create a new social contract for the age of migration that has been ushered in by large-scale spontaneous migration flows on both sides of the Atlantic. These flows have upended asylum adjudications systems and placed enormous stress on reception, housing, and social services, particularly in Europe.
Paired with dramatic change in the political landscape as nativists have capitalized on public disquiet with government’s ability to manage migration, fear has taken hold that the shared principles that govern how people live together have reached a breaking point. Several years on from the 2015-16 European migration crisis, there is an important opportunity to take stock of what has been learned and to build a new social contract for increasingly diverse societies that are confronting cycles of demographic, economic, social, and other disruption.
This Transatlantic Council on Migration report, which concludes a research series on rebuilding community after crisis, explores how unplanned migration spikes have unsettled the main institutions of liberal democracies and exposed the limits of integration strategies that are leaving many newcomers struggling to find their place in highly organized labor markets and skill-intensive economies.
