Europe is at the center of countervailing trends in the governance of global migration. Justin Gest will present findings of his book Crossroads: Comparative Immigration Regimes in a World of Demographic Change(Cambridge University Press, 2018), which he co-authored with Anna Boucher. The study offers a unique analysis of immigration governance across fourteen European states, and thirty countries worldwide. Relying on a database of immigration demographics in the world’s most important destinations, it presents a novel taxonomy and an analysis of what drives different approaches to immigration policy over space and time.
