This book is an output of the self-managed network ForAlps - Foreign immigration in the Alps (www.foralps.eu), coming from several seminars, conferences and joint research of the last 3 years.

We are going to present the book there, as this is a symbolic place where discussing EU/national policies about migration flows and the return of an old concept of frontier, due to new form of nationalism rising in Alpine countries.
