This chapter provides a sketch of the general treatment of the three elements that make up the empirical scope of the book. It then presents more critical reflections on how people can interpret and explain the appearance of policy variation in contentious and complex policy fields, such as migrant integration and migration. The discussion in the book uses the emerging United States (US) literature on the role of emotions in policymaking. Most of this literature has developed in relation to the US immigration policy. The chapter also includes an outline of the individual contributions that comprise this volume.

Keywords: empirical scope; policy variation; policy fields; migrant integration; migration; role of emotions; policymaking; US immigration policy
