Will immigration undermine the welfare state? Trust beyond Borders draws on public opinion data and case studies of Germany, Sweden, and the United States to document the influence of immigration and diversity on trust, reciprocity, and public support for welfare programs. Markus M. L. Crepaz demonstrates that we are, at least in some cases, capable of trusting beyond borders: of expressing faith in our fellow humans and extending help without regard for political classifications.

In Europe, the welfare state developed under conditions of relative homogeneity that fostered high levels of trust among citizens, while in America anxiety about immigration and diversity predated the emergence of a social safety net. Looking at our new era of global migration, Crepaz traces the renewed debate about "us" versus "them" on both sides of the Atlantic and asks how it will affect the public commitment to social welfare. Drawing on the literatures on immigration, identity, social trust, and the welfare state, Trust beyond Borders presents a novel analysis of immigration's challenge to the welfare state and a persuasive exploration of the policies that may yet preserve it.

"Crepaz contributes much to our knowledge about the link between immigration and social welfare, certainly one of the central issues in current national and international politics."
---Stuart Soroka, Associate Professor of Political Science and William Dawson Scholar, McGill University

"Finally! A book that challenges the growing view that ethnic diversity is the enemy of social solidarity. It addresses an issue of intense debate in Western nations; it takes dead aim at the theoretical issues at the center of the controversy; it deploys an impressive array of empirical evidence; and its conclusions represent a powerful corrective to the current drift of opinion. Trust beyond Borders will rank among the very best books in the field."
---Keith Banting, Queen's Research Chair in Public Policy, Queen's University

"Do mass immigration and ethnic diversity threaten popular support for the welfare state? Trust beyond Borders answers no. Marshaling an impressive array of comparative opinion data, Crepaz shows that countries with high levels of social trust and universal welfare state arrangements can avoid the development of the welfare chauvinism that typically accompanies diversity."
---Gary Freeman, Professor and Department Chair, Department of Government, University of Texas at Austin

Book Description The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Over the last twenty-five years, a variety of global and domestic changes - including the mass migrations unleashed by the end of the Cold War and the advent of European unification, as well as the onset of globalization and America's War on Terror - have focused worldwide attention on immigration policy. Conventional rhetoric portrays immigration as a divisive issue: a question of "us" versus "them." But how does immigration really affect community cohesion and civic trust? By drawing on a vast spectrum of data, Markus Crepaz's "Trust beyond Borders" rigorously tests common assumptions about immigration, welfare and trust, some for the first time. This broadly important new book proposes a novel theory of how attitudes about immigration and diversity are related to feelings of trust and reciprocity, and to support for the welfare state. Crepaz finds that we are, at least in some cases, capable of trusting "beyond borders": of expressing faith in our fellow humans, and extending support to them without regard for citizenship or political classifications.
