    This chapter is based on INTERACT Research Report 2013/04 by Gidley and Caputo, published by the Migration Policy Centre at the European University Institute, Florence, in 2013, revised for book publication by Sonya Kalantaryan. The chapter explores the key issues relating to how housing integration might be understood and further researched from a 'country of origin' perspective. Residential integration is a key and perhaps even foundational dimension of the integration of migrants and minorities. Residential integration includes two key elements: the nature and quality of the housing that minorities occupy, assessed in terms of factors such as tenure, overcrowding and disrepair; and the patterns of migrant residence in receiving societies, including clustering or segregation or their absence. The chapter asks how these processes look differently when examined in a transnational rather than methodologically nationalist way, and we might re-theorise migrant integration and migrant housing pathways in light of this transnational perspective.
