Abstract

In June 2005, the European Council proposed a ‘period of reflection’ responding to the concerns of its citizens about the future of Europe. It was a necessary reaction to the difficulties encountered in ratifying the Treaty that was to establish a Constitution for Europe. Reflecting and stocktaking have also shaped academic scholarship on the European Union (EU)1 during recent years. What has emerged is an increasing interest in the actual impact of the EU on its member states. Two waves of scholarship on the multi-level governance structures in the EU can be discerned. The first wave of EU studies was geared towards an understanding of the development of common political institutions and policies on the supranational European level. This first stage of European integration theory was dominated by bottom-up thinking and focused mainly on the role played by member states in the evolution of European integration. Only during the 1990s did this focus start to shift. The term ‘Europeanization’ characterizes the second wave of scholarship which reverses this perspective and has looked top-down.2 The established political structures and policies on the European level are now taken for granted, only now are their effects on domestic structures and policies being analysed. This volume contributes to this new research agenda by providing a comparative analysis of the impact of the EU on the policies and politics of immigration control in its member states as well as on its neighbouring states.
