This thought–provoking and authoritative collection of papers tackles a subject of urgent international concern migration, immigration and social policy. The volume s thirteen authors are drawn from diverse academic and professional backgrounds, in social work, social policy, sociology, psychology, government and international relations, and bring a wide range of expertise to bear on the subject. They offer readers a broad spectrum of informed perspectives on this most challenging and multi–faceted of policy dilemmas.

The volume presents forthright yet realistic analyses of the key issues: from the case for a world–wide system of migration management, to the quest for an EU asylum policy; from a review of European countries treatment of asylum seekers, to the welfare and citizenship implications of actual reception arrangements in Britain; from the tortuous implications of direct democracy in Switzerland to the pace of new positive integration moves in Denmark and Norway. Taken together, these papers constitute an important intervention in policy debates about migration and immigration.
