Welfare States and Immigrant Rights

Oxford University Press

Chapter 4 discusses the two conservative corporatist countries — Germany and France — and the impact of welfare regime attributes, such as work performance and contribution requirements, on immigrants' social rights. The chapter examines immigrants' formal inclusion and access to benefits, and how retrenchment, welfare state restructuring and changes in the incorporation regime have affected immigrants' social rights. In the German case the incorporation regime has been very important because until recently it differentiated between co-ethnic immigrants and foreigners. The concluding discussion compares the German and French welfare and incorporation regimes and their impact on immigrant rights. It also offers an assessment of the proposition that Germany and France are exemplars of contrasting models of citizenship and incorporation in light of policy developments during the past two decades.

Keywords:   Germany, France, conservative corporatist welfare regime, work, contribution requirements, retrenchment, welfare state restructuring, incorporation regime, immigrants' social rights, co-ethnic immigrants
