The book examines the phenomenon of immigration federalism: its
main characteristics, why and how it has developed, its
implications for immigration systems (in general) and non-citizens'
rights (in particular).The book introduces the reader to
theoretical perspectives on immigration federalism through three
sets of literature - federalism, governance and non-citizens'
rights - that provide a necessary framework for understanding
immigration federalism's multiple facets and impacts. It also
offers an analysis of immigration federalism through case studies
of six jurisdictions: Australia, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, the
EU and the US.
Despite increased sub-national activity in immigration
regulation in several federal states, very little research has been
dedicated so far to comparing how federal states deal with
immigration federalism. Comparative studies on the human rights
implications of immigration federalism have received even less
attention. This book seeks to fill the gap in this area and is an
important contribution to the field, providing the reader with a
better understanding of the complex issues surrounding immigration
federalism and its impact on non-citizens."
