However, the existing models do not adequately capture the complexities of contemporary international immigration and integration, especially the integration process in the light of migrant transnationalism in Asia. This study examines the models of integration through a case study of Singapore. This paper introduces a new concept 'transnational inclusion' to conceptualize Singapore's initiative to embrace its transnational global Singaporeans as well as its transnational immigrants, estimated to make up one-fourth of the total population. The paper shows that a transnational inclusion model of integration can provide better insights into the dynamics of transnationalism and integration in today's complex migration scenario. We point to Singapore's integration approach that regards integrating migrants into the different spheres of the society as a process rather than an end. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.||Source Title:||Asian Ethnicity||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/117054||ISSN:||14631369||DOI:||10.1080/14631369.2012.710403|
