Migration and the Externalities of European Integration analyzes the extra-European dimension of the European Union's migration policies and the mechanisms developed to enforce the EU's policy decisions. While previous scholarship has tended to overlook the consequences of Europeanization on actors outside the EU, this work scrutinizes the foreign policy dimension in EU migration policies and highlights the Union's complex role as an international actor. Written by scholars of migration policy, the essays discuss the impact of EU asylum and refugee policy on Norway, Switzerland, Eastern Europe, and the Euro-Mediterranean region and the effect of migration on European immigration controls and welfare policy. This comprehensive treatment of transnational migration will be a valuable resource for students of international affairs, European integration, and international organization.

Review quote

Richly insightful and theoretically innovative, this blockbuster of a volume taught me more about the EU's foreign relations and impact upon global politics than any other book. If you have been wondering about the future of the EU, and its migration-related policies, you must read this. -- Mark J. Miller, University of Delaware A breakthrough collection, one that takes seriously the external demographic impact of European integration and the growing importance of migration in and around Europe for policy makers. The book brings together an excellent group of scholars, and offers an important new agenda for research on immigration in international studies and political science. -- Adrian Favell, Centre d'etudes europeennes de Sciences Po In Migration and the Externalities of European Integration, editors Sandra Lavenex and Emek M. Ucarar, and their contributors off an innovative look at the European Union (EU)...The contributors bring new and interesting insights on the impact of the EU's immigration and asylum policies on nonmember states, and the EU's foreign policy. Governance All in all, as we would expect from these editors, this is a well-structured, insightful book, discussing a fascinating issue in a lively and intelligent way. It fills an important gap in migration studies, and should be thoroughly recommended to students, scholars and the migration policy community. The Royal Institute of International Affairs
