ABSTRACT. International migration and its consequences – the integration of newcomers to a society – has, in just a few years’ time, developed from a purely demographic phenomenon into an issue that has altered the ‘being’ of the Western Nation-state in all its facets. The topic largely dominates the political debate in Flanders, Belgium and at the level of the European Union.
