"With anti-immigrant sentiments rising throughout Europe, Suzanne Mulcahy takes stock of immigrant integration policies in the EU and 15 member states. Her theory-guided and methodologically rigorous study convincingly demonstrates that this sensitive area has largely resisted Europeanization. On the contrary, in the absence of legal competences, the EU has been unable to prevent many member states from adopting restrictive integration policies in response to far-right parties politicizing the failed integration of immigrants. This timely and important book is not only a must read for anyone interested in Europe's migration policy. It also holds important lessons for students of Europeanization and new modes of governance."

"This volume addresses a salient and contested issue, namely, the integration of migrants into European societies and the manner in which this issue has been drawn into the ambit of the EU. The volume is to be commended for its contribution to the literature on Europeanization and for the richness of its empirical range."
- Brigid Laffan, Professor of European Politics, University College Dublin, Ireland.
