Example text

It is the central argument of this book that this shift has coincided and been closely linked with a fundamental change in the character of welfare states and class relations in Europe. This has all happened simultaneously with globalization and regional integration, which bring into question the sovereignty and autonomy of the nation state. In this chapter we look at important turning points in the migratory process in order to understand how and why immigration and settlement took place, and to examine the policies and assumptions that underlay these important changes.

For Italy, registered foreign citizens in 2003. Source: Integrationsverket (2003: 241, based on own estimates, OECD data, and EUROSTAT Labour Force Survey) and Cesareo (2004b, based on Istat). data reveal the effect of diverging policies of incorporation, but also reflect national policies and prejudices. The great majority of foreign-born people in Germany, Switzerland, and Italy have remained foreign citizens due to these countries’ extremely restrictive naturalization policies. Because of this no separate data are available for the ‘foreign born’.

Sweden recruited from neighbouring Finland. The exceptions were the post-colonial immigration from Africa, the Caribbean, and Asia to the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. Moreover, each immigration country tended to receive newcomers from a limited range of source countries: four or five countries generally accounted for the bulk. But from the late 1960s, as industrial countries competed for relatively scarce labour, recruitment spread to a larger number of countries and became truly globalized, affecting workers from Turkey, Yugoslavia, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Asia, and Oceania.
