About this book

This book explores how and why the EU and its member states define immigration policies. A comparison of EU negotiations on five EU immigration directives reveals interests of actors in EU integration and whether common policies aim at a restriction or expansion of immigration to the EU.

Reviews

“It is concerned with the major challenges that globalization, broadly defined, poses for traditional state governance and policy making. … the book offers both a comprehensive overview of EU immigration policies and policy making and a richness of empirical detail that hitherto have been lacking. In so doing it provides an illuminating starting point for all those encountering the subject for the first time.” (Anthony M. Messina, The European Legacy, Vol. 20 (2), December, 2015)
