Debating Migration

Political Discourses on Labor Immigration in Historical Perspective

Stefanie Mayer and Mikael Spång take a close look at debates about (labor) immigration in Austria and Sweden by comparing discussions during the 1960s and 1970s with contemporary political discourse. The authors combine their research on institutional developments with elements of critical discourse analysis in a comparative perspective.
The volume also includes comments from experts on migration issues from former emigration and/or EU-accession countries, such as Finland, Turkey, former Yugoslavia and the Czech Republic, thereby casting light on how migration issues have been discussed in different contexts.
