Three Views on Diaspora
This introductory chapter presents the three cities used in highlighting global dynamics as well as specific national differences of integration contexts and policies in the Lebanese diaspora. These three settings vary in terms of the contexts of immigrant reception, where assimilation and multiculturalism take on different meanings, and result in different immigrant experiences for the diaspora. Historically the Lebanese immigrants' first destinations were New York in the United States and Montreal in Canada. Since the outbreak of the Lebanese civil war in 1975, Paris has become a destination equal in popularity to the two North American cities. The three cities continue to serve as magnets for present-day Lebanese immigrants for several reasons, which the chapter elaborates in further detail.
