Abstract

"Europe’s Immigration Challenge: Reconciling Work, Welfare and Mobility." Elena Jurado and Grete Brochmann (eds.). IB Tauris/Policy Network. January 2013. --- Debates over immigration in Europe have intensified since the start of the Eurozone crisis. This book compiles a number of contributions on the effect of immigration on European economies and welfare states. Alexandre Afonso finds the chapters to vary significantly in quality, but argues that taken as a whole, the book provides a good integrated overview of the challenges that immigration, fiscal austerity and changes in labour market structures entail.
