[Summary of the book containing this chapter:] Recently, global and European migration in the post-Cold War world has received much attention. This book is one of the first to analyse in detail the social policies of European welfare states towards refugees and asylum seekers in the 1990s. Chapters include: the evolution of asylum and refugee policy in the EU, including the recent developments in the Treaty of Amsterdam; the history and politics of refugee and asylum policies in Britain and Germany; detailed accounts of resettlement and social security entitlements; case-studies of key issues in social policy including employment, older people and unaccompanied children; the legal construction of the refugee.

This book will be an invaluable tool for students of social policy, race and ethnic relations, refugee studies and European studies and will also be of interest to lawyers, social workers and other practitioners in NGOs and local government working with asylum-seekers and refugees.
