This book brings together a collection of papers that examine the connection between social policy and migration. The articles and excerpts selected focus on the critical points of this subject: the emergence of interest in migration and diversity, the politicisation of migration, deservingness and restrictionism, migrant integration and dilemmas associated with welfare provision in diverse states, among more.

Professor Phillimore approaches this important subject from a brand new perspective, drawing upon previously disparate fields to create a comprehensive overview. Presented with an original introduction by the editor, Migration and Social Policy will be of great interest to scholars of migration, diversity and social policy, and to practitioners and policymakers with responsibility in this area.
