About this item

This study for scholars and advanced students in law, economics, and political science employs Max Weber’s theories of legitimacy and the concept of the state to develop a normative legal argument regarding the role of the state in migration control measures. The book begins by analyzing the concept of the state to identify the general role of this social construct, then takes a legal positivist approach to the question of whether or not current general and systematic measures of migration control by the state are legitimate. Britain and America are compared. The goal of the study is to explore ways to improve the legitimacy of state migration control. The book looks at limits on state control posed by international, regional, and global regimes. Of special interest is a discussion of the use of immigration as a political tool by competing political interests. The final chapter gives recommendations for migration control at the national, regional, and global levels, with examples of EU policies and the European Neighborhood Policy.
