Immigration and Integration

(p.137) 7 Immigration and Integration
Racism and Equality in the European Union

Mark Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines EU law and policy in the field of immigration and considers the extent to which it reflects the objectives of combating racism and promoting ethnic equality. It begins with an analysis of the extent to which any legal framework on immigration can promote ethnic equality and concludes that, notwithstanding borders and limited citizenship categories, there is space within which equality can be promoted. It looks at EU law and policy on irregular migrants, legal migrants, and the integration of migrants. It notes that in all these areas opportunities to promote ethnic equality had been missed and the impact of EU policies on ethnic minorities was at times overlooked.

Keywords:   racism, mainstreaming, irregular migrant, integration, illegal immigrant, refugee, long-term resident, equality, citizenship
