The governance of migration-related diversity encompasses a broad range of topics, such as integration policies, anti-discrimination and anti-racism strategies, diversity policies, and various others. In this chapter we will limit ourselves to governance by government bodies (local, national, other) and focus explicitly on migration-related diversities (ethnic, cultural, religious, racial, other). We will discuss various theoretical models for the governance of migration-related diversity, but will also discuss empirical material on how and why governments choose very different perspectives and approaches, for instance either focusing on integration, or inclusion, or anti-discrimination, or not having an explicitly focused policy on migration-related diversities at all.
