This volume contains the contributions to the XXI Annual Congress of the European Consortium for Church and State Research, held in Madrid on 12-15 November 2009. The issue addressed by the reporters -nearly fifty people from different countries of the European Union- was the repercussion of national immigration laws in the safeguard and exercise of freedom of religion. It contains these main points: legal provision currently existing to facilitate or limit immigration; statistics available for recent years about application of residence and religious dimension of this matter; legal requirements placed upon acquisition of citizenship and tests about countries institutions and values; systems respecting the legal regulation of asylum; churches actions in asylum; pastoral assistance to illegal immigrants; religions dimensions of united family policies on immigration laws and practice; and restrictions or quotas for the employment of non-EU citizens and exemptions clauses for clergy or pastors. Just a few lines to show the reader the variety of issues addressed in the reports of the Meeting and the wealth of information that could be found in this book. Summarizing the volume contents offers a comparative view of European immigration laws and their repercussions on religious freedom.
