About the Authors
  • Gallya Lahav's study examines the issue of immigration in the context of a Europe where the role of the nation state is in question, as the logic of the single market clashes with national policymaking. Immigration is a central issue in European politics since around a quarter of the world's migrants reside in Europe. Consequently, politicians throughout the continent are grappling with the problems this raises. Analyzing elite and public opinion, Lahav's book shows how support from both has led to the adoption of restrictive immigration policies despite the requirements of open borders.

    • Extremely topical - immigration is one of the great issues of contemporary European politics
    • Combines rich empirical data and original attitudinal approach to immigration politics in the EU
    • Provides an overview of EU migration policies over time, with attention to national comparisons, thus serving as a comprehensive reference

    "The author's elite interviews and parliamentary survey, as well as careful culling of secondary opinion studies, are testimony to the project's ambition and importance. It is a welcome addition to the urgeoning literature and will surely spark continued research and debate." Perspectives on Politics, Alan E. Kessler, University of Texas at Austin
