A Theoretical Framework for the Analysis of Spousal Migration Policies

Part of the Studien zur Migrations- und Integrationspolitik book series (SZMI)


For more than four decades, family migration has constituted a considerable share of all legal immigration into Europe. Many European states’ guest-worker-schemes ended in the 1970s; the economic crisis beginning in 1973 saw a rise in unemployment, and few new possibilities for large-scale labour migration. Family migration continued and grew disproportionately to become the most important mode of entry for third-country nationals (TCNs) into most European countries.
