Immigration and social change in the Republic of Ireland addresses the impact of recent, rapid social, economic, political and cultural change on Irish society. It includes chapters on citizenship and constitutional change, returned emigrants, the economic contribution of immigrants, the exploitation of migrant workers, asylum seekers and forced migrants, immigrant communities, politics, integration models and choices and social policy.
It will be of immense interest to students of sociology, social policy, human geography, politics, law and psychology and to general readers interested in racism and social change resulting from immigration. It is a companion volume to Racism and social change in the Republic of Ireland also published by Manchester University Press. -- .
