Reaching a State of Hope: Refugees, Immigrants and the Swedish Welfare State, 1930–2000

Reaching a State of Hope: Refugees, Immigrants and the Swedish Welfare State, 1930–2000

David Jansson of Uppsala University reviews Reaching a State of Hope: Refugees, Immigrants and the Swedish Welfare State, 1930–2000. This book is divided into five sections addressing World War II-era refugee policy, agents and reception of refugee policy during and after the war, refugee policy and the labor shortage during the Cold War period, immigration discourses and practices from 1960 to 2000, and international perspectives. Europe’s current political landscape hangs over this book in a decisive way, as the book must be read with the rising tide of xenophobia as a backdrop.
