Immigrant Rights, Gender and Policy Regimes
2012 (English)In: Comparisons, Quotas and Critical Change: in honor of Drude Dahlerup / [ed] Freidenvall, Lenita; Micheletti, Michele, Stockholm: Department of Political Science, Stockholm University , 2012, 23-35 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This chapter deals with the dynamics of three types of policy regimes—incorporation regimes, welfare regimes, and gender policy regimes—in shaping immigrant rights and gender differences in the rights of immigrants. Initially the chapter comments on policy regimes and efforts to use policy regimes in identifying crucial policy differences across countries. To explore the influence of policy regimes on immigrant rights, I compare two contrasting cases, Germany and Sweden, whose incorporation regimes, welfare regimes, and gender policy regimes differ. The analysis examines the major policy dimensions of the incorporation regime in the two countries in order to delineate the rights of immigrants in relation to those of citizens. It finds that gender differences in immigrant rights and cross national variations have been most pronounced in the case of family reunification and residence rights. The next section discusses the impact of regime dynamics on the rights of immigrant women and men.
