Immigration in Europe began to be a significant phenomenon in the 80s; since this period the numbers of the immigration fluxes have increased and changed, reaching peaks in particular with the outbreak of the Arab Springs and the upheavals in the sub-Saharan countries. After 7 years of work on this topic, describing the routes and efforts of EU to manage the phenomenon, I’m expanding my work describing the processes of inclusion and/or exclusion of the newcomers in the society. I strongly believe that nowadays we need to study the phenomenon in a perspective that allow us to understand how the European society is going to change after the thousands of people that arrived in the last years; and which kind of social challenges the continent will have to face to obtain a multicultural society, respectful of all the diversities.
