This essay presents the results of a research project carried out in 1998 on immigration in the city of Turin and public policies implemented at local level. The most recent data on the composition of immigrants are supplied by provenance, occupation, level of training, educaton, age, sex and so on. The authors make a survey of the main problems which immigration poses and how it turns from a question of initial reception into a stable phenomenon with which the city has to live. More specifically, the study examines the problems of accommodation, labour and employment, education and training, the latter being viewed as a preferential area for integration. It then goes on to examine the interventions made in the city since the Eighties and offers recommendations for public policies to solve these problems.
