Multicultural Territories: Local and Proximity Strategies Regarding the Integration of Immigrants

In the last few decades, Portugal has become not only the country of origin of thousands of emigrants, but also the destination for immigrant population. This phenomenon is reflected in a multicultural society, which has increasingly become a challenge for the country. In order to face this challenge, local and proximity strategies have been developed to promote the integration of foreigners. This paper aims to present a reflection on current trends of local policies and community movements to enhance integration in its plural dimensions.
