During the first half of the twentieth century, Canada's and Germany's responses to questions of national membership consisted of discriminatory policies aimed at harnessing migration for economic ends. Yet, by the end of the century, both countries were transformed into highly diverse multicultural societies. How did this remarkable shift come about? Triadafilopoulos argues that, after the war, global human rights norms intersected with domestic political identities and institutions, opening the way for the liberalization of Canada's and Germany's immigration and citizenship policies. His is a thought-provoking analysis that sheds light on the dynamics of membership politics and policy making in contemporary liberal-democratic countries.

MEDIA REVIEWS

?In a surprising but very satisfying comparison of Canada and Germany, Triadafilopoulos expertly weaves an analysis of high-minded ideals with gritty politics to explain how anti-racism norms and human rights have mattered for immigration policy. A beautifully written account of the transformations in entry and membership over the twentieth century."

? Irene Bloemraad, author of "Becoming a Citizen: Incorporating Immigrants and Refugees in the United States and Canada"
