This highly original book provides an innovative analysis of EU migration and asylum law and its interplay with equality issues in order to assess the current integration framework for third-country nationals and to explore future scenarios in the European Context.

Integration for Third-Country Nationals in the European Union focuses on the nexus between non-discrimination based on nationality and race, and the equality clauses covering different categories of regularly residing third-country nationals within EU law. It highlights the extent to which social rights that have been formally promised to non-EU citizens are enjoyed in practice. The contributing authors – who are both academics and practitioners – also consider the link between secure residence and equal treatment, highlighting on the implementation of EU Policies in aselection of Member States. Using socio-legal and comparative methods, this study provides an overview of the models of integration and social cohesion shaped by European and national actors in order to profile the present fragmented structure of European society and to discuss future possibilities.

Academics, practitioners, and students interested in EU law and migration studies will find this enriching book invaluable.
‘. . . an excellent research tool for academics and practitioners alike, as well as journalists of course and indeed anyone making serious enquiries into migration and refugee issues.’
