The book puts forward a discussion on the political engagement of migrants in exclusionary contexts. It focuses on the political marginalization of three migrant groups, Filipinos, Egyptians and Ecuadorians, in Milan, a city characterized by a moderately closed political context of migrant integration compared to other European cities. The study combines evidence on civic and political engagement by individual migrants with a focus on migrant organizational networks and organizations’ political engagement. By joining evidence form individual and organizational data, Pilati explores the possible consequences of the political exclusion of migrants, unfolding the different ways migrant communities cope with it. In particular, she discusses three outcomes: political exclusion may engender the social closure of migrant groups into political subcultures, it may lead to externally-driven participation, or it may lead to forms of radicalization.
