Editorial Reviews


"This immensely rich volume uses a wealth of historical and contemporary case studies to illuminate how the processes of immigrant political integration in Europe and North America resemble and differ from each other at the local, national, and international levels. Bringing Outsiders In is a must-read for scholars who are looking to deepen their understanding on how citizenship law, right-wing politics, public attitudes, and immigration policies affect the level and types of political engagement among immigrants in our liberal democracies."―Demetrios G. Papademetriou, President, Migration Policy Institute

"In a globalizing world, cross-border mobility and migration are an integral element of modern societies. Therefore we always have to give an answer to the question: What keeps a pluralistic society together, where multiculturalism is a fact and integration a challenge? This is not only a legislative challenge but also a matter of social consciousness. Every society, especially a pluralistic society, needs identification and empathy to function as a community. In this sense, integration is a process for the society as a whole; it is never completed and must constantly be encouraged. Bringing Outsiders In shows us in a very clear way how integration, as an ongoing process of achieving an understanding about the common bases and rules, can work for the whole society. It provides a great overview, very well done!"―Özcan Mutlu, Spokesperson for Education Policies, House of Representatives, State of Berlin

"Politics should take priority in studying as well as in promoting the incorporation of immigrants in democratic societies. This is the core idea shared by the authors of this state-of-the-art collection, which provides not only a comparative analysis of North America and Western Europe but also articulates the controversies involved in how to 'bring outsiders in.' This well-organized and important book is destined to become a major reference point for immigration research on both sides of the Atlantic."―Rainer Bauböck, European University Institute, Florence
