Family migration and integration are intimately related concepts in contemporary policy discourses in major migrant receiving countries. In these discourses, both family related migration as such and the migrant family as an institution are problematised with regard to their relation to integration. These policy discourses have led to a flurry of policy measures aimed at shaping patterns of family migration, family practices associated with migrant families in public debates (such as forced marriages) and the ‘quality’ of family migrants more generally. In addition, these policy discourses have contributed to a proliferation of studies on various aspects of family migration, family practices of migrant communities and family migration policies.
