Welfare States and Immigrant Rights

Oxford University Press

Part I compares immigrants' social rights across welfare states, and Chapter 2 presents the analytical framework used to chart the development of immigrants rights. The first component of the framework is Gøsta Esping-Andersen's welfare regime typology. Regime attributes, such as the basis of entitlement, benefit construction, and funding, are discussed in terms of how they promote immigrants' inclusion or exclusion. The second is entry categories, which include labor migrants, asylum seekers, family members, undocumented immigrants, and co-ethnic immigrants. The third component is the policy dimensions of the incorporation regime: citizenship acquisition, the permit system, family reunification, settlement programs, anti-discrimination legislation, and participatory rights. The chapter also discusses the choice of countries, the comparative strategy, delimitations, and caveats. The selection criteria have been the countries' welfare state regime and incorporation regime. Two countries represent each welfare regime type, but the two countries have contrasting incorporation regimes.

Keywords:   welfare state regime, entry categories, incorporation regime, citizenship acquisition, permit system, country selection, comparative strategy
