9780822958451: Becoming Europe: Immigration Integration And The Welfare State

Across Europe, millions of immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers have often had difficulties fitting into their new societies. Most analysts have laid the blame on a clash of cultures. Becoming Europe provides evidence that institutions matter more than culture in determining the shape of ethnic relations.

Patrick Ireland argues that it is incorrect blithely to anticipate unavoidable conflict between Muslim immigrants and European host societies. Noting similarities in the structure of the welfare states in Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium as well as in their respective North African and Turkish immigrant communities he compares national- and city-level developments to show how approaches toward immigrant settlement have diverged widely and evolved over time.

Becoming Europe demonstrates how policymakers have worked hard to balance immigrants’ claims to distinct traditions with demands for equal treatment. Ultimately, it reveals a picture of people learning by doing in the day-to-day activities that shape how communities come together and break apart.

From the Back Cover:

"A considerable feat of scholarship combining genuine innovation with real insight into Europe's complex politics of migration and ethnicity."-Andrew Geddes, University of Liverpool

"Ireland has done a masterful job in addressing a number of interrelated issues: the entitlements of citizenship; socioeconomic integration and cultural diversity; and the future of the welfare state in face of the pressures of globalization."-William Safran, University of Colorado

"The product of impressive fieldwork, Becoming Europe is a strikingly original analysis of how welfare reform affects immigrant incorporation. Ireland has few peers in his mastery of the details of his topic and he manages that most difficult of feats-to generalize broadly without doing violence to the complexities on the ground."-Gary P. Freeman, University of Texas at Austin

"Few books on the politics of immigration during the past twenty years have been founded on a deeper base of scholarship than that which underpins Becoming Europe. . . . Creatively linking the themes of immigrant incorporation and social policy retrenchment, and investigating the progress of multiculturalism and immigrant incorporation at the subnational level, Ireland makes a unique contribution to the field of immigration studies."-Tony Messina, University of Notre Dame

About the Author:

Patrick Ireland , author of The Policy Challenge of Ethnic Diversity, teaches comparative politics and international relations at the University of Houston and the University of Saint Thomas in Houston.
