Research Initiative:

Christian Joppke, professor of political and social sciences at the European University Institute, will write a book on the ways in which racial and ethnic selection criteria for immigrants are at odds with the precepts of liberal states. Joppke will compare the immigration policies of "liberal" states and "ethnic" states (such as Japan) with respect to public neutrality on immigration and the principle of equality. He will challenge the widely held scholarly and popular belief that immigration policy reflects a particular de facto vision of nationhood in various states -- for example, "civic" in the United States and France, "ethnic" in Germany and Japan. Joppke will propose a "liberal state" model to replace this outmoded "national community" model of immigration policy.
