This is a compilation prepared for the Migrations Program of the CIDOB Foundation. These contributions were made at the “European Seminar: Policies and Models of Welcoming,” held in Barcelona, Spain, in October 2006 at the CIDOB Foundation. First, the Introduction, by Dan Rodríguez-García, looks at immigration and models of immigrant social incorporation in different host societies, analysing the sociological and historical contexts of these models, their limitations, the key points of the current debates regarding those limitations, and the future trends. The second article, by John Biles and Lara Winnemore, is an analysis of the Canadian multicultural model, describing both the legislative context and the powers and services that are offered by the different levels of administration and stressing the need for bi-directionality and the decentralization of management. Finally, the latter article, by Inés Michalowski, is a comparative analysis of the conception and effectiveness of integration programs in three countries in Europe (Germany, France, and the Netherlands), evaluating in particular their programs for reception and welcoming.
