Integrating migration populations into settled communities presents a major challenge especially for municipalities. Consequently, this research project investigated how municipalities can support the integration process of people with a migration background in eight different municipal fields of integration. The examples of two Austrian cities (Linz and Dornbirn), which have many years of experience in designing and developing an integration process, activities and projects, have been analysed in order to further develop the integra-tion process. The wide variety of integration practices and activities of Linz and Dornbirn demonstrate how broad the room of manoeuvre is to create the municipal fields of integration.
