Abstract
EN
This chapter provides an overview of the patterns of engagement in various types of organisations and in various forms of political action at the local level by individuals of migrant origin. Using data from two surveys undertaken to migrants and their offspring in several European cities, the findings show there is considerable variation across European cities in the patterns of organisational engagement and political action. The findings also indicate that cross-city differences are systematically larger than cross-group variation within cities. This means that the context of settlement is a much more determining factor than the national origin or ancestry of migrants.
