Abstract
This qualitative research examined if prohibiting assistance to irregular migrants influences racism. Six countries and cities were compared by means of document analyses, interview and feedback from a Focus Group and Sounding Board. To answer the central question, first the transposition of the Facilitators’ Package was examined, thereby focussing on the domains of housing, healthcare and education. Secondly, the implementation of the Facilitators’ Package in urban contexts was scrutinised. The third and fourth sub question studied whether there is a link between the implementation of the Facilitators’ Package and racism in the six countries and six cities surveyed. The transposition of the Facilitators’ Package led to significant differences between Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. There is also a huge gap between the national legislations and urban practices. At local level, inclusive (Ghent, Milan and Barcelona) and exclusive cities (Frankfurt, Rotterdam and London) could be distinguished. No clear effect of prohibiting assistance to irregular migrants on racism could be ascertained.
