Book Description

This concise, pointed contribution to the ongoing debate in Europe on the controversial phenomena of migration will appeal to the general reader, represent a significant contribution to the scholarly debate, and be an essential teaching and discussion tool.

A brief introduction from the editor, setting the contours of the political debate on migration today in Europe, prepares the reader for the book’s debate. This is followed by two very powerful and contrasting statements for and against migration to Europe, and a response from each contributor to the other.

The pro-immigration chapter is written by Philippe Fargues, one of our most eminent migration scholars, whilst the anti-immigration chapter written by Anatol Lieven, a renowned expert on nationalism. The authors engage directly with the other's position, deepening the debate and searching for common ground, and suggesting solutions.

This text will be of key interest to readers, scholars, and students of international migration, migration and development, European politics, political theory, and more broadly to public policy and international relations.
