Welfare States and Immigrant Rights

Chapter 11 ties together the analyses in the preceding three chapters by examining the importance of 1) issue framing, 2) policy venues, policy coalitions and institutional arrangements, 3) the territorial dimension, 4) political parties, and 5) immigrant organizing and penetration of the political process in shaping immigrant rights across the six countries. The chapter also assesses the extent to which the experiences of the six countries confirm or differ from the results of earlier research. Among the conclusions are that equality frames have been central in promoting immigrant rights. Administrative politics and judicial politics have also had a decisive influence but they have both advanced and restricted immigrant rights. Political parties and left-right differences have played a major role in shaping immigrant rights. In three of the countries immigrants succeeded in gaining insider influence in the policy process, which had policy repercussions.
