Migration Policies and Political Participation: Inclusion or Intrusion in Western Europe

Migration Policies and Political Participation: Inclusion or Intrusion in Western Europe

Gökçe Yurdakul, of University of Toronto, reviews Migration Policies and Political Participation: Inclusion or Intrusion in Western Europe. The book compares immigration, migration, and citizenship policies, political structures, and migrant organizations in Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. The main questions raised are how immigrants participate in the receiving country and what structural elements in the receiving country either facilitate or constrain immigrants’ political participation. The author argues that existing structures in the receiving country support certain political actors and not others.
