The New Realities of European Migration Management, What Does It Mean for Insiders and Outsiders?

Part of the International Perspectives on Migration book series (IPMI, volume 5)


This volume brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars around an important question: how has migration changed in Europe as the European Union (EU) has enlarged, and what are the consequences for countries (and for migrants themselves) that are cast inside and outside of the redrawn jurisdictional and territorial borders of the EU? By addressing this question the book contributes to three current debates with respect to EU migration management: (1) that recent developments in EU migration management represent a profound spatial and organizational reconfiguration of the regional governance of migration, (2) evidence of a trend towards the externalization or subcontracting of migration control and, (3) how the implications of Europe’s changing immigration policy are increasingly felt across the European neighborhood and beyond. Based on new empirical research, the authors in this collection explore these three processes and their consequences for both member and non-member EU states, for migrants themselves, and for migration systems in the region.
