Summary
  • A distinctive contribution to the politics of citizenship and immigration in an expanding European Union, this book explains how and why differences arise in responses to immigration by examining local, national and transnational dimensions of public debates on Romanian migrants and the Roma minority in Italy and Spain.
  • "No subject is more divisive then migration policy in the current political debate in Europe. However, six years into the global financial crisis, it is not only migration from third countries, but even intra-European migration which creates tensions and controversies. The EU itself does not seem able to address a fundamental crisis of identity. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the politics of immigration and citizenship in the European Union, going at the origins of the debate on what it truly means to be a European Citizen. After introducing the theoretical dimension of the politics of immigration and citizenship, the book explores the cases of intra-EU migration in Italy and Spain of focusing on the case of the Roma. This thorough volume is essential reading for those who wish to understand the dynamics of intra-EU migration from a deep, cultural perspective." - Professor Leila Simona Talani, Professor of International Political Economy and Jean Monnet Chair in European Political Economy, King's College London "This timely and well-written book smartly shows how supranational structural-legal changes influence immigrants' integration in national contexts with different political dynamics. An outstanding contribution to a deeper understanding of policy and politics of citizenship, which will be highly beneficial to scholars and students interested in immigration to Europe and its consequences." - Claudia Finotelli, Universidad Complutense de Madrid

Summary expansion
Immigration has become one of the most significant and emotionally charged social and political issues of contemporary Europe. Public and political debates on immigration, however, differ greatly. This book asks how and why differences arise by examining public debates on Romanian migrants and the Roma minority in Italy and Spain. In so doing, it reveals what it means to become a citizen of an enlarging European Union facing economic crisis. McMahon's study shows how political responses to immigration and negotiation of the terms of citizenship are mediated by political positioning and claims making. It is a contextual and contested process, and often therefore tells us more about the political dynamics in the host country than about the immigrants themselves. Analysing three levels of these dynamics: the national, the local dimension in the capital cities of Rome and Madrid and the cross-border dimension of transnational political and social relations, this book provides a rich insight into the politics of citizenship and will be a valuable resource to scholars of Political Science, Sociology, Political Economy and Anthropology
