01/12/2008–02/12/2008, Vienna, Austria
Unprecedented streams of migration to European countries have forced European governments to reconsider their immigration policies. What is going to happen with migration in the future? Given the further divide of the world into rich and poor, do we expect more people to look for a better life and seek their fortune in Europe? What could be political measures aimed at optimising migration flows and what should be their guiding criteria? These are some of the questions this conference will address.

New forms of nationalist and populist movements have arrived in Europe. What began as a fringe campaign has become a challenge for politics and political systems in many EU nations. The 4th European conference of the NECE-Network is addressing these new and complicated issues. The conference will invite practitioners and experts from all over Europe to exchange interpretations and experiences of nationalism and populism in their respective countries. Nationalist and populist currents are a pan-European problem and therefore have to be discussed in a new and multilateral fashion.

Immigration and Asylum Law and Policy in Europe
The series, edited by Jan Niessen and Elspeth Guild, is a venue for books on European immigration and asylum law and policies where academics, policy makers, law practitioners and others look to find detailed analysis of this dynamic field.
Works in the series start from a European perspective. Increased co-operation within the European Union and the Council of Europe on matters related to immigration and asylum requires the publication of theoretical and empirical research. The series contributes to well-informed policy debates by analysing and interpreting the evolving European legislation and its effects on national law and policies. The series bring together the various stakeholders in these policy debates: the legal profession, researchers, employers, trade unions, human rights and other civil society organisations.
