Integration has long been perceived and approached as a matter pertaining primarily to destination societies and to migrants themselves. While destination societies seek the most efficient ways to accommodate migrants and maintain social cohesion, migrants for their part do tend to invest in human and social capital skills to address the needs and characteristics of their host societies. At present, it seems that integration is increasingly perceived as a major problem in today’s societies and that this may depend not only on the destination society itself but also on where the migrants are from. Some specific groups such as Muslims or forced migrants fleeing war seem particularly likely to be perceived as a threat to social cohesion in Western societies.
