Gunnar Myrdal's questions in An American Dilemma with reference to Europe's current dual crisis - that of the established welfare state facing a declining capacity to maintain equity, and that of the nation state’s inability to accommodate incremental ethnic diversity. They com- pare developments across the European Union with the contemporary US experience of poverty, race, and class. The authors provide a critical scrutiny of the EU's grow- ing policy involvement in the fields of international migra- tion, integration, discrimination, and racism and of the efforts to develop a European 'social dimension', illus- trated by case-studies including UK, Germany, Italy, and Sweden. Carl Ulrik Schierup, research director of the book-pro- ject is the scientific director of CWW and the FAMM re- search group at NIWL, as well as of the European IMILCO (International Migration, Informal Labour and Community in Europe ) research initiative and compara- tive research on international migration and changing labour markets within NIWL’s SALTSA Programme for Working Life Research in Europe. The Integration of Immigrants in the Swedish: Labour Market and Welfare System; Assistant Professor, Mikael Hjerm (NIWL) Mikael Hjerm graduated from Umeå University in 2000. He was a (NIWL) member of the CWW research group between 2002 and 2004, where he carried out research on the integration of immigrants in the Swedish labour market and welfare system with a focus on analysing patterns and causes of marginalisation. He also pub- lished studies on income and welfare aspects of ‘ethnic busines’ in Sweden on the basis of the register based data base LOUISE, discussing his results in a compara- tive theoretical perspective (Hjerm 2001b). In coopera- tion with Statistics Sweden he followed up different di- mensions of the labour market and welfare institutional integration/marginalisation of immigrants in the 1990s (Hjerm 2001a; 2002a; 2002b;Vogel, Hjerm and Johans- son 2002). These studies were based on the compilation of a longitudinal dataset from the Swedish Survey on Living Conditions (ULF). CWW cooperation with Mikael Hjerm has continued since his employment in a perma- nent position at Umeå University in 2004, and an initia- tive has been taken for cooperation of CWW on devel- opment of the European Social Survey for which Hjerm is responsible in Sweden. EU Migration Policy; Associate professor Peo Hansen (LiU) Peo Hansen joined the CWW programme after finalizing his PhD thesis Europeans Only? Essays on Identity Poli- tics and the European Union , (diss.), Umeå: Umeå Uni- versity, 2000. Peo Hansen’s research interest lies in the contemporary as well as historical development of European integration in general, and in the questions of migration, citizenship, welfare and identity, as these relate to the current proc- ess, project and political economy of European integra- tion in particular. His work has resulted in integrated analyses giving equal consideration to the internal di- mension of EU migration policy (e.g. migrant and minor-

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
