Throughout Europe, immigration remains the topic of much heated and sometimes irrational discussion. It is recognised as one of the most important political, ethical, cultural, social and economic issues throughout Europe. But the solutions to the problems associated with it are diverse and often divisive. Immigration in Europe tackles this complex and controversial subject, addressing the key questions at its heart. How are immigrants received by their host community and what part does government policy play? How do attitudes towards immigrants vary throughout Europe and why? And how does the language used in political and media discussions of immigration shape popular opinion?
In this comprehensive and ground-breaking work, Alessandra Buonfino analyses different definitions of immigration and sets out the history of the policy and debate surrounding immigration. She examines the connection between immigration and national security policies, questioning whether it is possible to move beyond purely national concerns to a longer-term approach. While exploring the real difficulties associated with immigration – for example, people trafficking, prostitution and money laundering – Immigration in Europe does not ignore the human stories behind the soundbites.
Immigration in Europe
places immigration in a national, European and global context and will help to set the agenda for future debates on the subject. For students of European Studies, International Relations and Politics it will become an essential reference point.
