The article presents and analyses the core European Union documents on migrant integration. On the basis of existing discussions within the social sciences, in particular more recent sociological concepts and studies of social processes involving migrants, the article aims to provide a more relevant framework for the European Union institutions’ engagement in these processes. The authors analyse the criticism of European migrant integration policy stemming from social sciences and indicate the relevance of contemporary sociological concepts and research on the process of migrant integration for formulating a more pragmatic approach of the European Union to migrant integration. “Superdiversity”, segmented integration and strengthening of transnational ties of migrants show that a holistic integration of migrant populations collides with the social reality of multidimensional adaptation of migrant and non-migrant populations to ethnic, demographic, economic, cultural and other changes in the urban context of contemporary European societies. The authors concluded that, instead of standardising integration measures for nation-states at a supranational level, the European Union should offer a more pragmatic approach to migrant integration based on relevant insights from social sciences as well as concrete “field experience” of researchers, practitioners, migrant organisations and local authorities.
