Chapter Summary

In contrast to the growing importance of European Union( EU) legislation in the field of migration law, integration policies lie primarily within the responsibility of the individual Member States. The Presidency Conclusions of the Tampere European Council set ambitious targets by calling for a more vigorous integration policy aimed at granting legally resident third-country nationals rights and obligations comparable to those of EU citizens. This was followed by the formulation of a set of common basic principles of the European Union's immigrant integration policy. This chapter provides a comparison of integration measures before entry, after entry and for citizenship in the five Member States under consideration, as well as assessing common trends and developments and providing the basis for a human rights scrutiny of integration measures. It attempts to measure and discuss the success of integration policies in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
