Immigration and the Nation-State

Christian Joppke

Oxford University Press

The UK has tried to address the problem of immigrant integration through a mixture of a restrictive immigration policy and a liberal race‐relations policy. Its central consensus has been attacked at the level of local politics by a militant anti‐racist left and a nationalist ‘anti‐anti‐racist’ right, and is now further threatened by pressures from the minorities themselves, which show the limits of an approach to integration that focuses on race at the expense of other group markers. In particular, Muslim demands (for example, in relation to separate Islamic schools and book‐banning) illustrate the limits of multiculturalism in a liberal state.
