Child Welfare Systems and Migrant Children examines where, why and to what extent immigrant children are represented in the child welfare system in different countries. These countries include Australia/New Zealand, Belgium/the Netherlands, England, Estonia, Canada, Finland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Norway, and the United States--all of them having different child welfare philosophies and systems as well as histories and practices in immigration. By comparing policies and practices in child welfare systems (and welfare states), especially in terms of how they conceptualize and deal with immigrant children and their families, we address an immensely important and pressing issue in modern societies. Immigrants in the child welfare system are a critical issue and they seem to face serious challenges that are evident across countries. These are challenges related to lack of language proficiency, lack of knowledge about cultural and social aspects and about the public systems of the destination country. Perhaps most relevantly, the challenges may include collisions of ideas and beliefs about how to raise children, about children's place in the family and society, and about children's rights.

In recent decades, many countries have experienced both a rapid increase of in-migration of foreign nationals and a large-scale devolution of governance to the local level. The result has been new government policies to promote the social inclusion of recently arrived residents. In New Policies for New Residents, Deborah J. Milly focuses on the intersection of these trends in Japan. Despite the country's history of restrictive immigration policies, some Japanese favor a more accepting approach to immigrants. Policies supportive of foreign residents could help attract immigrants as the country adjusts to labor market conditions and a looming demographic crisis. As well, local citizen engagement is producing more inclusive approaches to community. Milly compares the policy discussions and outcomes in Japan with those in South Korea and in two similarly challenged Mediterranean nations, Italy and Spain. All four are recent countries of immigration, and all undertook major policy innovations for immigrants by the 2000s. In Japan and Spain, local NGO-local government collaboration has influenced national policy through the advocacy of local governments. South Korea and Italy included NGO advocates as policy actors and partners at the national level far earlier as they responded to new immigration, producing policy changes that fueled local networks of governance and advocacy. In all these cases, Milly finds, nongovernmental advocacy groups have the power to shape local governance and affect national policy, though in different way.

In the current critical European dilemma as to whether to increase diversity policies or move towards an assimilationist policy, it is difficult to know what the Spanish approach is. Because immigration is relatively new, government policies are struggling to manage the diversity it entails. This book argues that Spain can be considered a context of "multiple diversity", where two frameworks interact: an old, unresolved one, arising from the democratic transition, and a new one due to immigration. This explains the Spanish practical approach, where recent past and its different traditions limit institutional innovation and structural change. The author proposes a heuristic model to better understand the current "Spanish laboratory of diversities". The author analyses in depth three case studies which have been at the forefront of the political and social agenda for decades: education, the workplace, and political rights. This book provides the reader with an updated overview on how Spain is managing diversity, empirically informed and theoretically founded, which highlights new dimensions and normative challenges. It will appeal to researchers in social science, graduate and postgraduate students, policy makers and international stakeholders.

Irregular migrants, who by definition are in an unlawful situation, face insecurity on a daily basis. This prompted the Council of Europe's European Committee on Migration (CDMG) to assess the policy and practice in member states. The aim of the exercise was to identify and evaluate national experiences regarding regularisation proceedings and to draw up proposals for dealing with irregular migration and improving co-operation between countries of origin and host countries. Volumes I and II cover five countries that participated in the first series of evaluations: Armenia, Germany, Greece, Italy And The Russian Federation. Volume III and IV include reports prepared within the second series and cover five other countries: France, Poland, Portugal, Spain And The United Kingdom.
