Beskrivelse

New Towns have always been places characterized by migration: by definition, they have no ‘original’ inhabitants – every resident is a migrant. As such, New Towns are the prototypical ‘Arrival Cities’ and have in the past been more successful than most towns in integrating migrants or ’newcomers’. However, many of the communities in the older New Towns from the 60s and 70s seem to have stabilized in such a way that as economic and political resources diminish, migrants from outside the country have a hard time being accepted.
