Welfare States, Immigration and Citizenship: Notes on a Framework for Analyzing Immigrants' Social Rights
2008 (English)In: Nordic Political Science Association Conference, Tromsö, Norway 6-9 August 2008, 2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The first part of this paper argues that to analyze the social rights of immigrants we need a framework that centers on three components: welfare state regimes, forms of entry and incorporation regimes. Each component and its potential impact on immigrants’ social rights are discussed. The second part of the paper focuses on how to analyze the variations in immigrants’ social rights. It emphasizes the importance of 1) issue framing, 2) policy venues, the resulting policy networks and patterns of coalition building, 3) the territorial dimension of immigrant policy, 4) state-society relations, 5) political parties and 6) the nature of ethnic and immigrant mobilization and penetration.
