Autorenporträt
Working through Barriers deals with the role host countries institutional characteristics play in the labour market integration of immigrants in the European Union. Drawing on existing research, the book develops a comprehensive conceptual framework of factors (and underlying mechanisms) affecting immigrant structural integration in the European Union-15. It maps the European countries with respect to three institutional aspects central to immigrant integration, immigration policies, labour market structure and welfare regimes. Direct tests are provided for the hypothetical role of institutions in the process of immigrant labour market incorporation in the EU countries. This book combines the strengths of large-scale analyses with those of in-depth case studies, allowing an extensive as well as a detailed and focused view of the issue.
