The recent arrival of new migrants fleeing from situations of war and crisis has produced a new state of emergency in Italy as well as in other European countries. In particular, the number of asylum seekers and unaccompanied minors has significantly increased in recent years. These changes in migration flows have put European immigrant policies under heavy strain and have strongly impacted on national reception systems. The present essay introduces the main themes of the special issue of Autonomie locali e servizi sociali. More specifically, it looks at the vulnerabilities both of the Italian welfare system and of these new migrant people and it examines how national and local policies are reacting to these changes.
