Welfare States and Immigrant Rights

Diane Sainsbury

Oxford University Press

The focus of Chapter 5 is the social democratic regime countries — Sweden and Denmark — and how regime characteristics, such as universalism and entitlements based on citizenship and residence, have affected immigrants' social rights. The chapter discusses immigrants' formal inclusion in social provision, the impact of welfare cutbacks on immigrants' social rights and economic well-being, and the influence of changes in the incorporation regime on immigrant rights. The concluding discussion compares how similarities and differences in the Swedish and Danish welfare and incorporation regimes have affected immigrants' social rights. The comparison is also extended to the other regime countries.

Keywords:   Sweden, Denmark, social democratic welfare regime, universalism, citizenship, residence, retrenchment, incorporation regime, immigrants' social rights
