Abstract:

This volume explains how and why the New Labour governments transformed Britain's immigration system from a highly restrictive regime to one of the most expansive in Europe, otherwise known as the Managed Migration policy. It offers the first in-depth and candid account of this period of dramatic political development from the actors who made policy during 'the making of the migrant state'. Drawing on document analysis and over 50 elite interviews, the book sets out to explain how and why this radical policy change transpired, by examining how organised interests, political parties and institutions shaped and changed policy.
