Neoliberal Nationalism : Immigration and the Rise of the Populist Right, Paperback / softback Book

Neoliberal Nationalism : Immigration and the Rise of the Populist Right Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The Brexit and Trump shocks of 2016 mark a deep caesura in the history of liberal societies.

It is no longer sufficient, if it ever was, to look at Western states' immigration and citizenship policies through the single lens of advancing liberalism.

Instead, two additional forces need to be reckoned with: a new nationalism, but also the neoliberal restructuring of state and society in which it is generated.

Joppke demonstrates that many of the new policies have their roots in neoliberalism rather than the new nationalism.

Moreover, some of them, such as 'earned citizenship', are the product of neoliberalism and nationalism working in tandem, in terms of a neoliberal nationalism.

The neoliberalism-nationalism nexus is complex, its elements sometimes opposing but sometimes complementing or even constituting one another.

This topical book will appeal to students and scholars of populism, nationalism, and immigration and citizenship, across comparative politics, sociology and political theory.
