Managing Integration: The European Union's Responsibilities towards Immigrants
Edited by Rita Süssmuth and Werner Weidenfeld
Paperback, 218 pages
Managing immigration and integration is one of the most vital and
challenging tasks that the European Union is facing today. Since the
Union's enlargement to include 25 members, the issue has become even
more pressing. This book analyzes approaches, strategies, and best
practices from EU Member States that could contribute to a sustainable
integration policy. It thus provides European, national, regional, and
local decision-makers with instruments they can draw on in establishing a
European framework for integration.
