Abstract

Current events, such as the 2008 economic
crisis, the large number of asylum seekers fleeing from conflict
zones, terrorism threats, and the growth of right-wing antiimmigrant
populism, all within the context of neoliberalism,
raise questions regarding the settlement and integration of
migrant newcomers in Western liberal democracies. This
involves an increasing role for NGOs in immigrant settlement
provision through state-NGO ‘partnerships’. By exploring
immigration and settlement policy in a comparative context,
our main objective is to analyze the role of nonprofits in
settlement and integration service delivery, as well as their
activities aimed at promoting immigrant well-being and social
justice in neoliberal times.
