This book examines the role that institutional characteristics of host countries play in labour market integration of immigrants in the European Union. Drawing on existing research, it develops a comprehensive conceptual framework of factors and underlying mechanisms which affect immigrant integration in the fifteen nations that comprise the European Union. The author analyzes selected EU countries in depth, investigating the extent to which immigrants have succeeded or failed in different institutional contexts.
