The Political Economy of Managed Migration synopsis
European governments have rediscovered labor migration but are eager to be seen as controlling unwanted forms of migration, particularly through asylum and family reunification. The emerging paradigm of managedmigration combines the building of more attractive channels for future labor migrants and active workers with a more restrictive approach to asylum-seekers.
Non-State actors, especially employers' organizations, trade unions and humanitarian non-governmental organizations, are trying to formulate regulatory measures, but their success varies according to organizational characteristics. Pressure strategies of labor market associations for the quantities and professional level of migrant workers will be affected by the relevant politicaleconomy system in which they are involved.
Unions generally work to support well-managed employment strategies. But immigration policy-making also progresses at the level of the European Union (EU).
At a time when national representatives are trying to put their national model as a blueprint for future EU policy to avoid costly adjustment, a top-down European is reorganizing national laws in important ways, despite very different national organizational philosophies. Based on field work in basic documents and their analysis from six European countries (France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany and Poland), this book makes an important contribution to the study of the scope of European policy quickly.
The book combines ideas from the literature on comparative politicaleconomy,Europe and migration studies, and makes important contributions to all three countries, while explaining how the policy of migration can be studied fruitfully by employing tools from the prevailing political science rather than treating it as a distinct subfield .
