Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Christina Boswell's short overview of recent Western European migration policies is sober, crisp, businesslike, and useful"

"This is indeed an important and useful book...Boswell helps us to get a good grip on the issues involved."
Australian Journal of Political Science

"This outstanding book cuts in a lucid and accessible way to the core of the key migration policy dilemmas facing Europe. It will be an indispensable guide for anyone with an interest in these important questions." Andrew Geddes, Jean Monnet Reader in EU Government and Politics, University of Liverpool

"Provides an important insight into … one of the highly contested policy fields in Europe, focusing on what lessons can be learned … and what pitfalls policy-makers need to avoid. It should be on the desk of every immigration or interior ministry official in Europe who is struggling with the national and European debate." Elspeth Guild, Professor of European Immigration Law, University of Nijmegen, Partner, Kingsley Napley

"Makes an invaluable contribution to one of the most high-profile issues in Europe today."
