The Third Edition of Controlling Immigration provides an assessment of the efforts of major destination countries to deal with immigration--paying particular attention to the gap between policy goals and outcomes.

Retaining its comprehensive coverage of nations of immigrants--those like the U.S., Canada, and Australia that were built by immigrants--and countries of immigration--those with a more recent history of immigration, like France, Germany, and the U.K., and the latecomers like Italy, Spain, Japan, and Korea--the new edition highlights the differences among these countries, with new chapters on Scandinavia and the European Union. It looks closely at the tension created by post-colonial immigration and how countries have attempted to control flows of low-skilled workers, both legal and illegal, how they cope with integration of the new waves of immigrants, and how they deal with refugees and asylum seekers. It also examines the dichotomy between low- and high-skilled immigration and the way in which each country wrestles with the "liberal paradox"--the economic need to remain open to immigration, which must be balanced against the political and security imperative to maintain control of borders and to protect the social contract. In conclusion, the book explores the prospects for global governance of migration.
