Integration policies are at the forefront of EU and national debates. At EU level, integration issues have gained extensive importance in the framework of the development of an EU migration policy. At national level, discourses about failed integration policies have put integration policies under high pressure in political and legislative debates. Thereby, an interaction between the EU level and the national level can be observed. A general trend emerges where immigration and integration policies become increasingly interconnected. More precisely, migrants’ access to a (stronger) legal status is becoming dependent on their level of integration.
