The Making of the Conservative Party's Immigration Policy (Hardback)Rebecca Partos (author)
- Coming soon
Political parties have rarely been studied as agents of immigration policy change. This book explains the development of the Conservative Party's immigration policy during the seven decades from the post-war years to today. By bringing together existing theories from the fields of political science and migration studies, this book offers a new model of party policy-making, which could be modified and tested in other contexts.
Grounded in rigorous scholarship, but of interest to general readers as well as specialists and students, this book provides a thoughtful and engaging account of the making of modern Britain. The book draws on 30 interviews with figures who were at the heart of policy-making, such as Damian Green and Gavin Barwell, Ken Clarke and Douglas Hurd, to reveal that the `national mood' often has more impact on policy-making than the empirics of the situation.
This book will be of key interest to scholars, students and readers interested in British politics, immigration and migration studies, Conservative Party politics, and more broadly to public policy, political parties, and European and comparative politics.
