Overview of the immigration, integration and
asylum and refugee policies of EU member states
Financed by the European Commission, DG Employment
and Social Affairs.
Governments in Europe are on the one hand restricting
immigration and refugee protection, whilst on the other hand they
are opening new gates of entry for highly skilled people and some
industries. At the same time the EU is formulating its own migration
and refugee policies, sometimes in parallel with national developments
and sometimes in conflict with them.
This project will give an overview of immigration, integration and
refugee protection policies in all EU member states. These studies
will then be confronted with a specific analysis of European Union
politics and policies.
The project is being carried out by a consortium
made up as follows:
General coordination, study on Germany and Austria,
comparative analysis of the case studies, and the study of European
Union policies - Berlin Institute for Comparative Social Research.
Scandinavian studies - Danish Centre for Migration
and Ethnic Studies
UK and Ireland - Centre for Research in Ethnic
Studies of Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg
- Migration and Ethnicity Research Institute, University of Leuven
Studies of Italy and France - Dipartimento di
Science Dell Educazione, University of Florence
Studies of Spain and Portugal - Departmento de
antroplolgia y trabajo social, University of Granada
Study of Greece - Dept of Political Science and
History, University of Athens
