European migration policies are undergoing significant changes. After three decades of highly restrictive approaches, demographic changes and gaps in labour supply are prompting many European governments to liberalize their migration policies. Yet the shift to more liberal regimes comes at a time of increased hostility to asylum seekers and support for parties of the far right in several countries, as well as uncertainty about the effectiveness of integration and race relations strategies. This timely book examines the nature and impact of these changing migration policies in Germany, Italy and the UK. It analyses the content of new legislation and proposals, as well as the policy debate and party political treatment of migration issues in each country. The book considers the implications of these new policies for other categories of migrants: asylum seekers, refugees and resident ethnic minorities.
