Grete Brochmann, University of Oslo will speak on “Governing Immigration In Advanced Welfare States. The Scandinavian Case.”
Scandinavian countries have historically combined a strict labor immigration regulation with equal treatment policy in terms of access to welfare rights of legal residents. This dual approach, has been followed more meticulously among the Nordics than what has been the case other places in Europe. In this presentation Grete Brochmann will discuss the historical genesis of the approach, emphasizing economic, political and ideological factors, and show how today, when the model is seriously challenged, institutional path dependencies serve as both obstacles for change and possible remedies for cure.
