Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume identifies language, discourse, and political parties as the three main causes of recent developments in European migration politics. It underlines the role of political parties as key societal actors, the multiple institutional levels on which migration policymaking plays itself out, and how political ideas and societal discourse, economic interests and public attitudes figure prominently in shaping the adoption, implementation, and public perception of immigration and integration policy measures. Methodologically, the authors make use of process tracing, public opinion data analysis, focus group and interviews, discourse analysis and historical case studies. The geographic range of cases includes France, the UK, Turkey, Switzerland, Poland, the Netherlands and several of the Nordic states. Empirically, the coverage includes studies of the implementation of municipal-level integration measures, the role of discourse by governments seeking to exclude whole categories of migrants from the demos, the public perception of mobility and migration status within the EU, and the comparative analysis of the implementation of EU Asylum Directives in various member states.

Synopsis:

This book engages with politics and political discourse that relate to and qualify immigration in Europe. It brings together empirical analysis of immigration both topically and contextually, and interprets such empirical evidence with the use of policy and discursive analyses as methodological tools. Thematically, this volume focuses on how discourse and politics operate in issue areas as varied as immigrant integration and multilevel governance, Roma immigration and their respective securitization, the uses of language in determination of asylum applications, gendered immigrants in informal economy, perceptions of integration by the migrants, economic interests and economic nationalism stimulating immigration choices, ideology and entry policies, and asylum processes and the institutional evolution of immigration systems. These issues are analyzed with empirical evidence investigating the discursive formulation of immigration systems in political contexts such as the Netherlands, France, United Kingdom, Turkey, Switzerland, Scandinavian states, and Finland.
