Mapping Migration – Mapping Churches’ Responses in Europe by Alessia Passarelli and Darrell Jackson
Alessia Passarelli & Darrell Jackson, Mapping Migration – Mapping Churches’ Responses in Europe, CCME, 2015.
The 2008 edition of the Mapping Migration, Mapping Churches’ Responses: Europe Study was a ground-breaking investigation of the engagement with migrants and the phenomenon of migration by churches in Europe.
This revised and updated edition provides a more coherent discussion of the patterns of the churches’ engagement with migration: focused around the three themes of belonging, community, and integration. This shapes our discussion of migration as a phenomenon, of migration in sociological perspective, and of migration in theological perspective. Continuing with these themes, we allow them to shape our presentation of demographic data and responses received from the churches to a research questionnaire commissioned especially for this edition.
