The Politics of Migration explores the opportunities and tensions posed by this unprecedented level of migration and looks at the policy levers that governments must deploy to manage it effectively.
The book consists of a series of essays written by some of the foremost international experts on migration and citizenship issues. Focusing on Europe and North America, these experts examine issues such as the rise of the far right, the contradictory dynamics of migration in the European Union, the international politics of refugees, the impact of migration on labour markets and welfare states, the integration of Muslims, public opinion and citizenship. Arguing that we need to move beyond a sharply polarised debate, they offer a series of strong, workable proposals for managing migration more effectively.
