Abstract

Dorothy L. Zinn Migrants as Metaphor: Institutions and Integration in South Tyrol’s Divided Societ ( y cisu , Rome, 2018), isbn 9788- 87- 975658- 7 (paperback ) In today’s ‘age of migration’, the presence of migrants is a feature and a struc - tural reality not only of central areas and major cities but also of mor - e periph eral territories. This is, for example, the case of South Tyrol, the Italian province of Bolzano/ Bozen at the border with Austria and Switzerland, which is char - acterized by a German- and Ladin- speaking population and several measures (i.e. a consociational complex power sharing syst - em) to protect their cultural characteristics and regulate relations among Italian, German and Ladin speak - ers. Meanwhile, the process of migrants’ ‘integration’ (or, if preferred terms, inclusion, or incorporation) remains an enduring test for democratic coun - tries. The task is even more puzzling where migrants are incorporated in soci - eties like South Tyrol that present already a high degree of cultur linguistic al- inhomogeneity. In this context, Dorothy Zinn Migr ’s ants as Metaphor offers a marvellous account from an anthropological perspective of how migration interplays with substate nationalism.
