Die Getriebenen

Author: Robin Alexander
Publisher: Siedler Verlag
ISBN: 9783641208103
Release Date: 2017-03-13
Genre: Political Science

Ein dramatisches Kapitel jüngster deutscher Geschichte – und ein Insider-Report aus dem Innern der Macht. Die Grenzöffnung für Flüchtlinge im Herbst 2015 hat das Land gespalten – die einen preisen Angela Merkels moralische Haltung, die andern geißeln die Preisgabe von Souveränität. Doch was als planvolles Handeln erscheint, ist in Wahrheit eine Politik des Durchwurstelns, des Taktierens und Lavierens, befeuert von hehren Idealen und Opportunismus. Robin Alexander zeigt, dass die politischen Akteure Getriebene sind, zerrieben zwischen selbst auferlegten Zwängen und den sich überschlagenden Ereignissen. Robin Alexander blickt als Korrespondent der »Welt am Sonntag« seit Jahren hinter die Kulissen des Kanzleramtes - in seinem Buch, das auf Recherchen in Berlin, Brüssel, Wien, Budapest und der Türkei basiert, rekonstruiert er minutiös die Schlüsselentscheidungen von sechs Schicksalsmonaten - und erzählt am Beispiel des wohl dramatischsten Kapitels der jüngeren deutschen Geschichte davon, wie heute Politik gemacht wird.

Institutional and Policy Dynamics of Eu Migration Law

Author: Georgia Papagianni
Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers
ISBN: 9789004152793
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Law

The main objective of this book is to present the on-going process of European integration via a comprehensive analysis of the institutional dynamics of, and politics linked with, the emerging migration law and policy of the European Union. More specifically, it presents the historical evolution, the main institutional legislative and policy steps, the position of, and interactions among, the different actors, and the factors impeding the formation of a common policy at EU level. On this basis a critical analysis is provided of the main institutional problems, the current policy framework, the overarching rationale as well as of the content and quality of the nascent EU migration law. The book is divided into three parts. The first two parts provide a comprehensive study of the institutional framework and the substantive EC/EU law respectively. The third and final part provides a more general analysis of the policy-making process. Since the major achievements in the field of migration are recent, the book focuses to a great extent on the post-Amsterdam era. However, for reasons of coherence and in order to better evaluate recent developments, a concise overview of the origins of this policy is provided. Moreover, special emphasis is placed on the Schengen acquis, since its mark on European affairs has been and remains pronounced. Overall the attempt has been to provide an account, which is up to date with extensive historical references and combines both an academic and practical perspective to the legal and political issues involved. The approach based on the above elements will contribute to a new understanding of the main aspects of EU migration law and its policy ramifications andwill be of use to both academics and practitioners alike.

European Readmission Policy

Author: Nils Coleman
Publisher: BRILL
ISBN: 9789004165540
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Law

Offering the first comprehensive analysis of readmission agreements, this book examines the intersection of immigration and human rights law and the complex interplay between evolving international, regional and national norms. Expanding the current academic and policy discourse on readmission agreements through detailed consideration of the negotiation processes carried out by the European Community, it renders a nuanced review of the underlying strategic objectives and regional effects of these treaties. The book makes a robust challenge to prevailing perspectives in legal scholarship and policy on readmission and refugee protection. The self-contained focus on EC readmission agreements throws light on broader questions of EU migration policy and reveals a detailed and insightful picture of a specific field of EU policy and action.

In Search of the Perfect Citizen

Author: Sergio Carrera
Publisher: BRILL
ISBN: 9789004175099
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Political Science

This book studies the normative intersection between integration, immigration and nationality in the European Union (EU). It examines the relationship between integration and the legal frameworks of admission, stay and access to nationality by third country nationals at national and European levels. Integration is being subject to multifaceted processes transforming its traditional policy and legal settings, as well as its classical theoretical premises and approaches. The Europeanisation of immigration policy has provoked the emergence of distinctive European approaches on integration. The legal elements of integration are being developed through two parallel settings: the EU Framework on Integration and European immigration law. These venues constitute two of the main pillars upon which the common EU immigration policy is being constructed, and their nexus raises several elements in need of reflection and study. This book examines the processes through which integration becomes a norm in nationality and immigration law and policy at the national and EU levels, and the implications of these processes for the legal status of third country nationals and the overall coherency of the common EU immigration policy.

Whose Freedom Security and Justice

Author: Anneliese Baldaccini
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9781847313669
Release Date: 2007-06-28
Genre: Law

This book brings together contributions from some of the leading authorities in the field of EU immigration and asylum law to reflect upon developments since the Amsterdam Treaty and, particularly, the Tampere European Council in 1999. At Tampere, Heads of State and Government met to set guidelines for the implementation of the powers and competences introduced by the Amsterdam Treaty and make the development of the Union as an area of freedom, security and justice a reality. Since 1999, a substantial body of law and policy has developed, but the process has been lengthy and the results open to critique. This book presents a series of analyses of and reflections on the major legal instruments and policy themes, with the underlying question, to what extent the ideals held out of 'freedom, security and justice accessible to all', are in fact reflected in these legislative and policy developments. Has freedom from terrorism and the spectre of illegal or irregular migration, and increasingly strict border securitisation and surveillance overshadowed the freedom of the migrant to seek entry or residence for legitimate touristic, work, study, or family reasons, a secure refuge from persecution, and effective access to justice? In 2004, the Heads of State and Government presented a programme for the next stage of development in these areas, the Hague Programme, and the Directives and Regulations that have been agreed are now being transposed and applied in Member States legal systems. What are the main challenges in the years ahead as the Hague Programme and the existing legislative acquis are implemented?
