Immigration and the Liberal State (L2097)
30 credits, Level 6
In this module, you examine why immigration has become one of the most contested issues on the political agenda of liberal states across Europe and North America.
You look at representative democracy, constitutionalism, capitalism, and nationhood - and examine how these generate conflicting imperatives for immigration policymaking, which lead to contradictory policies.
You develop an understanding of how immigration policies in liberal democracies are shaped and study recent trends in the immigration, citizenship and integration policies of immigrant-receiving countries in Europe and North America.
