In Scandinavian countries immigration is a sensitive issue and legislators' approach to the questions it has raised has varied over the years. Whatever immigrant and integration policies are adopted in a democratic society, it is clear that the legislation and the authorities have to ensure that the individual rights of the immigrants residing in its territory are respected. With Canada as a point of reference, this book draws attention to weaknesses in the regulation and implementation of integration provisions threatening the immigrants' individual rights in the EU member states of Denmark, Finland and Sweden. The study challenges readers to critically review the meaning of rights and the notion of global caring. It takes a critical look at how vulnerable immigrants fare in a largely immigrant nation with a welfare capitalism legacy, when compared to three European nations which claim to embrace institutional welfare models. This book will be of great interest to scholars and decision-makers interested in Scandinavian or Canadian immigration and integration policies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This volume will be of great value to, as the authors put it, 'all those who try to help immigrants and safeguard their rights'. As the number of people seeking asylum in European countries is reaching an unprecedented level, and more and more of them perish while trying to find a place of safety in Europe, the authors emphasise the need for authorities to find the way to enforce and properly implement the policies designed to protect these individuals."
