partners and NGOs: in selected member states (see project 2.1.1), at the EU level and at the wider multilateral international level. The project will enhance the knowledge base for the development of new and more inte- grated policies and frameworks of action for labour unions, NGOs/INGOs and public labour and welfare agen- cies across the EU and candidate countries. 2.2.2. Internationa l Migration, Citizenship and the European Social Model Interdisciplinary research team: Rune Johansson, Peo Hansen, and Christina Johansson Labour migration, ‘illegal immigration’, asylum, and M&EM integration have become important issues on the EU policy agenda. Current research has exposed that normative contradictions and deep- seated conflicts of interest are at stake in this development (Hansen 2007; Hansen and Hager 2007). While the EU’s economic and demographic dynamic is said to be wholly bound up with a large-scale inflow of new labour migrants, the member states’ political dynamic has increasingly become bound up with the issue of migration control, the fomentation of anti- immigrant sentiments and, in some cases an open cooperation between governments and the extreme right. But the EU’s global competitiveness and sustained social cohesion are contingent on successful management of convergence and interdependence between migration policy harmonization and policies for harmonising socio- economic governance (Schierup, Hansen and Castles 2006). An extended study on Contradiction and Conver- gence Between EU Migration Policy and Socio-economic Governance will examine policy development pitched at two levels: (1) as conflicts and contradictions play out between national and supranational levels; and (2) as they play out within the supranational policy making itself. It relies on a detailed survey of policy documents within EU’s multiannual programme on migration (the Hague Programme, 2005-2010) and its programme on growth, employment and social cohesion (Lisbon Strategy 2000-2010). Since both programmes are governed by national, intergovernmental and supranational actors, institutions and structures, the project will examine the impact of this dynamic on migration and welfare policies, with which the issue of an inclusive

European citizenship regime, projected by both programmes, is closely related. This demands analysis of EU migration policy and socio-economic governance in tandem, rather than as separate fields. Related to these issues of EU driven policies for harmonising migration policies and policies on welfare and socioeconomic governance a study on Undocumented workers in discourse and legislation: Sweden in European perspective will focus on responses of a national welfare state to supra- national discourses and regulations. The study draws on earlier work with issues of migration control and undocumented migrants (Johansson 2005; Johansson, Johansson and Rahman 2005). It will, in an international comparative perspective, examine how Swedish public agencies and NGOs produce and shape meaning and understanding of irregular

    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.
