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.
