Abstract

'What do we mean when we say integration?' It is obvious that discussing integration in the way it has been dealt with in Irish political discourse over the last number of years, without recourse to a more general discussion about what a state of integrated-ness is in social, political or economic terms, has been somewhat absurd. But the very fact that many of the cultural myths of the last decade are disintegrating around us makes this a particularly useful time to have a discussion of integration as it is seen in relation to migrants, but also in relation to more general and resurgent discussions about what makes a good society or what an integrated society might actually be.
