International migration and mobility whether from outside the EU or in the form of free movement by EU citizens are controversial and potentially divisive issues that are and will remain at the top of the EU’s political agenda.

This fully revised and updated text analyses the complex and often controversial nature of policymaking in this fast-developing field, and brings the discussion up to date as the ramifications of the so-called ‘migration crisis’ continue to unfold. It offers an exploration of the dynamics of migration and mobility in the EU including different types of migration; the EU’s policy framework within which national policies are now located; and considers the widespread notion and public perception of policy failure in this field.

Unique in its portrayal of policy responses to migration in Europe, this text will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of the politics of migration, European integration and the Politics of EU, as well as anyone with an interest in this fascinating policy area.

This excellent book on the politics of EU citizenship, migration and asylum could not be more timely, at a moment when different occurrences such as Brexit, the Global Compact on Migration or the Member States´ ageing population affect policies in this area. As such, the authors have completed a crucial reference that all students on the topic should consult in the coming years. – Diego Acosta, University of Bristol, UK

Combining analysis of different forms of migration and different aspects of the policy process, this is an accessible and engaging resource for both students and researchers. –Gill Allwood, Nottingham Trent University, UK
This 2nd edition is the best book available on European migration policy and politics. The authors have pulled off the rare feat of writing a book that will appeal to readers who are new to the subject, but which at the same time provides analytical insights for advanced researchers. It should be read widely. – James Hampshire, University of Sussex, UK
A one-stop resource offering the analytical tools and essential facts to understand the migration politics and policies of the EU and its member countries. There is no better guide to these vital issues. – David Scott FitzGerald, University of California San Diego, USA
