In principle immigration policy should be viewed objectively, considering several factors and stakeholders. In reality, immigration is one of the most hotly emotional subjects in politics today. This book explores the role of emotions in the making and justification of immigration policy. It presents a comparative look at a number of industrialized nations to identify similarities and differences, with a particular focus on the role played by local histories of immigration and the politics surrounding the issue.
