Abstract

Drawing upon the debates on ‘suburbanisms’ and ‘arrival space’, this article explores the complexities for welfare governance in multiethnic peripheries. The paper bridges two themes of the contemporary ‘suburban century’: the intensified global migration flows and the peripheral condition of suburbs worldwide; the work refers to the Municipality of Pioltello, a multiethnic suburban area in Milan’s region. This double-sided perspective reveals governance dynamics, here discussed through the concept of ‘welfare offloading’. In the observed neighborhood, governmental complexities disclose profound interdependencies with the region’s urban core and across municipalities; welfare tensions are ‘offloaded’ from the central core to peripheral regions.
