Relations between Immigration and Integration Policies in Europe: Challenges, Opportunities and Perspectives in Selected EU Member States, eds. Maciej Duszczyk, Marta Pachocka, Dominika Pszczółkowska, Routledge 2020.

Written from a pan-European perspective, this book examines the decision-making processes in immigration and integration policies in Europe across decades, focusing on several key moments of Europe’s postwar history. The analysis of factors taken into consideration by states in key moments of immigration policy (re)formulation shows that Europe is moving away from rational, economic arguments towards more political ones.

This book contributes to the theoretical and practical debate regarding immigration and integration policies by arguing that – contrary to assumptions – immigration policy should not be treated as having precedence before integration policy. It also reflects on the growing anti-immigration sentiments as well as the securitisation and criminalisation of migration issues that are fuelled by right-wing politics.

ANUCES Visiting Fellow Prof Stefan Markowski and ANUCES Deputy Director Dr Katarzyna Williams contributed the chapter “‘Fair Dinkum’ Migration Policy: Lessons from Australia.”
