The Integration Nation: Immigration and Colonial Power in Liberal Democracies
Book by Adrian Favell;
Review by Gemma Bird
Gemma Bird of the University of Liverpool and the Centre for Global Cooperation Research University of Duisburg-Essen reviews The Integration Nation: Immigration and Colonial Power in Liberal Democracies by Adrian Favell. In this book, Favell achieves not only an important and informative discussion of the history of integration policies in the United States and Europe, but also a powerful and illuminating critique of the underpinning coloniality inherent in a focus on integration in policy making. In drawing out these racial and colonial logics, The Integration Nation develops and expands on recent research exploring the relationships between capitalism, coloniality, and immigration policies. The Integration Nation will be of interest to researchers and students alike, and relevant as a core reading for master’s level courses focused on migration.
