This chapter examines how local governments and civil society groups in Italy, Korea, and Spain work toward immigrants' social inclusion. Focusing on the policy areas of housing, health, and education, it explores the role of subnational governments and their collaboration with nonprofit and voluntary organizations to study their method of forging membership for immigrants locally and nationally. In Italy, national inclusion of advocates, national framework legislation, and active initiatives across levels of government have reinforced one another to provide immigrant supports, despite anti-immigrant backlash. In Korea, local governments organized national efforts to improve conditions of social inclusion. Lastly, in Spain, regional governments and parties promoted national policies for immigrants.
