Immigration, Integration and Security examines the multidimensional factors influencing the increased securitization of immigration and integration policies in the US and the EU. Fourteen chapters follow an attention-catching introduction. The first two consider political, historical and cultural differences between the US and the EU, while the following three chapters portray emerging security frameworks as a response to international terrorism. This first part develops possible explanations for different approaches. The rest of the book contrasts policies on immigration, integration and security in selected EU Member States and the US, in the EU and US and among different EU Member States.
