Migration in Europe

Show Summary Details


Contemporary European societies are marked by migration – the movement of people across national boundaries. This poses challenges to conventional definitions of citizenship which draw a connection between citizenship and national identity. In this chapter we will examine the different responses to immigration by different European countries and relate this to their different conceptions and practices of citizenship. We will also examine how the European Union has impacted upon these questions of migration, identity and citizenship.
