Editors: Nadia Rania and Laura Migliorini (Department of Education Sciences, University of Genoa, Italy)
Book Description:
International migration is an increasingly critical issue in the world today. In the international community, individual nations are struggling with the question of how to effectively manage migration.
Immigration involves several challenges at the individual level and in the relationship with the host community. Migration is one of the most disorganizing individual experiences; it affects identity and wellbeing as migrants negotiate roles and cultural values. At the social level, immigration is related to relevant changes in community life as well as in the use of urban space and social welfare, and involves demographic, educational, and sociological aspects. In our society, various positions make migration a complex phenomenon.

The author’s intention is to open a dialogue concerning this crucial theme of human existence from the perspective of individual and collective experiences, as well as from the scientific position this phenomenon is analyzed. This book proposes several studies about migration and intercultural relationships from multiple viewpoints, and from a multidisciplinary perspective through psychological, educational, sociological, anthropological, historical and geographical approaches. Moreover, the book addresses the main theoretical frameworks that characterize the international debate and analyzes intercultural challenges and opportunities that may arise in different areas and at different stages of the life cycle. The main constructs this book addresses are acculturation, negotiation, and integration in various contexts (e.g., family, school, etc.) at different stages of life (e.g., minors, adolescents, parents, etc.). Furthermore, the book reflects on different typologies of migration (e.g., refugees, unaccompanied minors, etc.) and different methodologies to examine the phenomenon (e.g., videoethnography, in depth interviewing, questionnaires, territorial and space analysis, etc.). Intercultural Relations and Migration Processes present a complex, rich picture of these issues and the problems related to the phenomenon, in which experience and national research data are intertwined with the acquisition of experience gained in the international arena.
