Converging Paths to Restriction

French, Italian, and British Responses to Immigration

Demetrios G. Papademetriou, Kimberly A. Hamilton
Release Date: March 1, 1996

Demetrios G. Papademetriou and Kimberly Hamilton focus on how France, Italy, and the United Kingdom are responding to the complex issues raised by immigration and asylum matters. They explore the often trial-and-error character of governmental responses to these issues, the absence of mainstream political- party leadership, and the growing disjuncture between initiatives motivated by increasingly restrictionist impulses and practical efforts to further the immigrant integration at the local level.
