Abstract or Description

Economic migration has been rediscovered by governments across Europe. Highly skilled migrants are actively solicited, irregular migrants are being offered amnesties, and East-West migration is welcomed by business and employer associations. However, this is a highly politicized and contested policy domain. This timely collection of cutting-edge research explores and examines the new realities of economic immigration to Europe. The thematic focus rests on new trends and developments, including the rediscovery of economic migration, factors explaining the focus on highly skilled migration, legalization measures, irregular migration, East-West flows, the role of employers and business groups, new positions amongst trade unions, outsourcing of control functions, and service sector liberalization and its implications.
