The History of the European Migration Regime: Germany’s Strategic Hegemony is now available in the Routledge Studies in Modern European History (description below).

After the Second World War, the international migration regime in Europe took a course different from the global migration regime and the migration regimes in other regions. From the cumbersome and arbitrary administrative practices that prevailed in the late 1940s in most parts of Europe, the European migration regime was deeply transformed by the gradual implementation of regulations for the free movement of people within the European Community, European citizenship, and the internal and external dimensions of the Schengen agreements. These instruments produced a regional regime in Europe with an unparalleled degree of intraregional openness and an unparalleled degree of closure in regard to migrants from outside Europe. Using national and international archives, this book explains how German strategies during the Cold War shaped the openness of that original regime. It highlights how the migration regime helped Germany to create a stable international order in Western Europe after the war, conducive to German Reunification, and supported German economic expansion. The book embraces the whole period of development of this regime, from 1947 through 1992. It deals with all types of migrants between and towards European countries: unskilled labourers, skilled professionals, self-employed workers, and migrant workers’ family members, examining both their access to economic activity and their social and political rights.
