"...genuinely enhances the reader’s insight into the often complex issues at stake in the field of migration....high quality and genuinely interesting."
Wim van Lancker in Journal of Common Market Studies
"This book is a well-written and welcome contribution to the comparatively scarce literature on the relationship between migration, integration and welfare states."
International Journal of Social Welfare
"Migration, social protection and social integration represent subjects of major and critical concern at both the EU and member state levels. This very timely book offers an excellent overview, analysis, and understanding of challenges for the European migration-social policy nexus."
Stein Kuhnle, University of Bergen, Norway, and Hertie School of Governance, Germany
"This analytically astute and empirically rich volume focuses on the interaction between policies and migrant integration, a decade after the first volume on Migration and the Welfare State. The research is presented by a nice line-up of scholars and contributes to the policy literature as well as to migration and social policy studies."
Virginie Guiraudon, CERAPS, University of Lille 2

About This Book

This book provides innovative insights into one of the most controversial and important subjects of the 21st century: migration and social integration. Empirically, the volume offers comprehensive grounding in the relationships between migration, migration policies and social protection/inclusion in the enlarged European Union and its member states. Theoretically, the collection moves the debate on migration and integration policies onto new terrain. It explains how policies in this field are produced by institutional frameworks, political strategy, and contingent responses to events, but that these are themselves shaped by emotions, discourses, narratives, formal and informal aspects of governance. With contributions from leading international experts, the book can be used by academics and professionals as well as by undergraduate and postgraduate students.
