From their inception, social democratic parties have faced a 'progressive dilemma' based on how to reconcile their internationalism with the concerns of their working class constituents regarding competition from immigrants. Johann Lindvall's paper, analyzes the comparative political history of the progressive dilemma and efforts to address it with the help of new cross-country and longitudinal evidence on immigration policies, welfare states, and governments in 18 rich democracies over nearly 100 years from World War I to the early 2010s.
