Controlling a New Migration World explores the factors that drive recent migration control policies and, in turn, sheds light on the unintended consequences of policies for the new character of migration. This book asks how we can account for the immigration policies of liberal states. Is the recent linkage between migration and security a rhetorical invention of elites or a reflection of changing migrant profiles? Are states' control policies effectively containing or only redirecting unwanted migration flows? This increasingly relevant issue will be of great use to anyone working in comparative politics, sociology and studying ethnicity or international migration, as well as professionals working in the migrant/asylum and public law fields.

Die Logik der Entrechtung

Sicherheits- und Nutzendiskurse im österreichischen Migrationsregime

English summary: The political regulation of migration in liberal nation-states depends on the differential deprivation of fundamental rights. These complex forms of granting and denying different sets of rights to different groups of migrants hinges on a multi-facetted interplay of two seemingly contradictory political logics: thesecuritisatio (linked to construals of migration as existential danger and as out of control) and the conomisation of migration(based on demands for "rational" policy approaches and stressing the need for migration). Using the example of the Austrian migration regime, this book shows how the interplay of these two logics has allowed for adapting regulatory frameworks to changing political-economic circumstances. This general argument is illustrated with examples from the early beginnings of the Austrian migration regime in the interwar-period to the post-WWII guestworker regime and, finally, to recent forms of neoliberal migration management that combine highly precarious legal statuses for so-called temporary migrants and a points-based system for the highly-skilled. German description: Die politische Steuerung von Migration beruht im liberalen Nationalstaat auf komplexen Formen der Entrechtung. Kenneth Horvath argumentiert, dass diese nach Kriterien wie Herkunft, Alter und Ausbildung differenzierte Zu- und Aberkennung von Rechten auf einem vielschichtigen Wechselspiel zweier migrationspolitischer Logiken beruht, die ublicherweise als konkurrierende Politikansatze gefasst werden. Am Beispiel der Entwicklung des osterreichischen Migrationsregimes wird nachgezeichnet, wie das Wechselspiel einer restriktiven Sicherheitslogik und einer nutzenorientierten Wirtschaftslogik erlaubt hat, das migrationspolitische Regelwerk uber die Jahre den jeweiligen politisch-okonomischen Gegebenheiten anzupassen. Dabei wird der Blick auf bisher wenig beachtete Episoden der osterreichischen Migrationspolitik gelenkt, etwa das Inlandarbeiterschutzgesetz der 1920er-Jahre, die Gleichstellung der Volksdeutschen nach 1945 und die Einfuhrung von Saisonarbeiterstatus und Rot-Weiss-Rot-Karte.

This edited volume provides an innovative contribution to the debate on contemporary European geopolitics by tracing some of the new political geographies and geographical imaginations emergent within - and made possible by - the EU's actions in the international arena. Drawing on case studies that range from the Arctic to East Africa, the nine empirical chapters provide a critical geopolitical reading of the ways in which particular places, countries, and regions are brought into the EU's orbit and the ways in which they are made to work for 'EU'rope. The analyses look at how the spaces of 'EU'ropean power and actorness are narrated and created, but also at how 'EU'rope's discursive (and material) strategies of incorporation are differently appropriated by local and regional elites, from the southern shores of the Mediterranean to Eastern Europe and the Balkans. The question of EU border management is a particularly important concern of several contributions, highlighting some of the ways in which the Union's border-work is actively (re)making the European space.

Transatlantic Policymaking in an Age of Austerity integrates the study of politics and public policy across a broad spectrum of regulatory and social welfare policies in the United States and several nations of Western Europe. The editors and a sterling list of contributors look at policymaking in the 1990s through the present—providing a comparative politics framework—stressing both parallel development and the differences between and among the nations. Similar prevailing ideas and political factors can be identified and transatlantic comparisons made—providing for a clearer understanding of the policymaking process. Faith in regulated markets and the burden of rising welfare costs are concerns found on both sides of the Atlantic. Western democracies also share political climates colored by economic austerity; low trust in government, pressures from interest groups, and a sharply divided electorate. Because of differing political processes and differing policy starting points, a variety of disparate policy decisions have resulted. Real world policymaking in the areas of welfare, health, labor, immigration reform, disability rights, consumer and environmental regulation, administrative reforms, and corporate governance are compared. Ultimately, the last decade is best characterized as one of "drift," sluggish changes with little real innovation and much default to the private sector. In general, policymakers on both sides of the ocean, constrained by economic necessity, have been unable to produce policy outcomes that satisfy the key segments of the electorate. The contributors examine the United States, Great Britain, France, and Germany, as well as a number of other European countries, and study the European Union itself as a policymaking institution. Transatlantic Policymaking in an Age of Austerity distills the prominent issues, politics, and roles played by governmental institutions into a new understanding of the dynamics of policymaking in and among transatlantic nations.

The articles in this publication seek to explain some of the fundamental matters connected with the European integration process and will cast light upon several perspectives of European cooperation. The following themes have been examined most closely: perspectives of European political cooperation, development of European legal standards, European economic integration, fighting poverty in the European Union and the free movement of people within the European Union and creation of European local initiatives. The authors also attempt to discuss the question of how the generally positive evaluation of the European Union enlargement reflects the political, legal, economic and social reality in Europe.

The third edition of this major work provides a systematic, comparative assessment of the efforts of a selection of major countries, including the U.S., to deal with immigration and immigrant issues— paying particular attention to the ever-widening gap between their migration policy goals and outcomes. Retaining its comprehensive coverage of nations built by immigrants and those with a more recent history of immigration, the new edition pays particular attention to the tensions created by post-colonial immigration, and explores how countries have attempted to control the entry and employment of legal and illegal Third World immigrants, how they cope with the social and economic integration of these new waves of immigrants, and how they deal with forced migration.

Recent acts of terrorism in Britain and Europe and the events of 9/11 in the United States have greatly influenced immigration, security, and integration policies in these countries. Yet many of the current practices surrounding these issues were developed decades ago, and are ill-suited to the dynamics of today's global economies and immigration patterns. At the core of much policy debate is the inherent paradox whereby immigrant populations are frequently perceived as posing a potential security threat yet bolster economies by providing an inexpensive workforce. Strict attention to border controls and immigration quotas has diverted focus away from perhaps the most significant dilemma: the integration of existing immigrant groups. Often restricted in their civil and political rights and targets of xenophobia, racial profiling, and discrimination, immigrants are unable or unwilling to integrate into the population. These factors breed distrust, disenfranchisement, and hatred-factors that potentially engender radicalization and can even threaten internal security. The contributors compare policies on these issues at three relational levels: between individual EU nations and the U.S., between the EU and U.S., and among EU nations. What emerges is a timely and critical examination of the variations and contradictions in policy at each level of interaction and how different agencies and different nations often work in opposition to each other with self-defeating results. While the contributors differ on courses of action, they offer fresh perspectives, some examining significant case studies and laying the groundwork for future debate on these crucial issues.

In the 1990s, immigration emerged as a central issue of public policy and a driving factor in democratic elections throughout the world. Modern democracies now all face the same questions: how many immigrants to accept, what rights and special services to provide them, and how to control illegal immigration. This book provides a systematic, comparative study of immigration policy and policy outcomes in industrialized democracies. In-depth examinations of the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Japan have been updated for the second edition, and new chapters on Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, and South Korea have been added. Each profile addresses why certain immigration control measures were selected and why these measures usually failed to achieve their stated objectives. The discussion has been expanded to address the growing trend of migration of highly skilled professional workers, a particularly salient issue in the United States.
