    Stefanie Mayer and Mikael SpAng take a close look at debates regarding (labor) immigration in Austria and Sweden by comparing discussions during the 1960s and 1970s with contemporary political discourse. The editors combine their research on institutional developments with elements of critical discourse analysis in a comparative perspective. The volume also includes comments from experts on migration issues from former emigration and/or EU-accession countries, such as Finland, Turkey, former Yugoslavia, and the Czech Republic, thereby, casting light on how migration issues have been discussed in different contexts.


    Stefanie Mayer is currently working on her PhD in political science at the sociology department of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Vienna.

    Mikael SpAng is an associate professor of political science in the department of global political studies at MalmO University.
