This chapter provides a synopsis of the multilayered argument developed in this book, outlining the effects that divergent systems of political economy will have on the preferences of labor market interest associations and the way in which organizational characteristics condition the effectiveness of lobbying strategies for liberalized labor migration policy. But migration policy also encompasses asylum and is shaped by the lobbying activities of humanitarian nongovernmental organizations. In addition, the politics in this domain play out over several arenas and in the form of two-level games; top-down Europeanization is influential, but national governments will also attempt to set the agenda through bottom-up Europeanization by importing their own regulatory pattern to the European level for use as a blueprint. Migration policy is also increasingly influenced by competition state prerogatives. This chapter situates this book within broader theoretical debates, discusses the specific contributions made to existing bodies of literature, and covers the methodological approach adopted.

Keywords:   bottom-up Europeanization, two-level games, systems of political economy, market interest associations, asylum
