Governing Immigration in Advanced Welfare States: The Scandinavian Case
Friday, April 25, 2014 at 2pm in Mandel Reading Room 303, 3rd Floor
The Scandinavian countries today face different kinds of challenges in relation to multicultural immigration. Questions of social cohesion and the sustainability of societal formation have been raised in all three countries over the last 10-15 years. Grete Brochmann will describe and analyze the dynamics generated when these challenges meet the traditionally equality oriented and ethnically homogeneous Scandinavian countries. She asks how the political approaches available for governance are formed by the institutional structure of the region, in which the welfare state plays an essential role.
