Abstract: The lecture intends to offer a critical overview of the trends and processes of migration and the incorporation of immigrants’ in Greece. It will locate the Greek case within the European map of migration, explaining the transition of Southern Europe as a whole from emigration to immigration, and describing the particularities of the Greek context. It will then account for the labour market implications of migration to Greece and assess the development of immigration and integration policies. It will finally reflect on the challenges posed by Greece’s emerging ‘multiethnicity’ to established notions of national identity and uneasy perceptions of the ‘other’. The lecture’s overall goal is to establish the links between migration, integration and social change in contemporary Greek society, which are ultimately shaped by the deepening economic and social crisis.
Panos Hatziprokopiou is Associate Professor at the Department of Spatial Planning and Development at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. He has conducted research in Greece and the UK, focusing on aspects of migration and the incorporation of immigrants, and on dimensions of diversity, otherness and the urban space.
