Comparison of Swedish and German Immigrant Integration Policies within the light of the European Union Framwork
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Problems of immigrant integration and therefore, the issue of relevant policymaking have occupied the agenda both in the member states, and of the supranational institutions of the EU. This research aims to compare the immigrant integration policies of Germany and Sweden at the macro level, within the light of the emerging pertinent framework of the EU. The selection of these member states has been made on the grounds that they have developed their policies deriving from different theoretical models of immigration. The results obtained from the comparison will hopefully illuminate which model seems to be theoretically more competent in terms of policy development on the matter. Furthermore, fruitful insights can be drawn about the future direction of policy-making in the EU, taking into account the theoretical debate on immigrant integration.
