4.0 out of 5 stars Useful study of migration and movement in the EU 29 Oct 2013
Christina Boswell is Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Edinburgh and Andrew Geddes is Professor of Politics at the University of Sheffield. They have written a very informative study of migration and mobility in the European Union.

At least five million people have left Eastern Europe's countries, whose economies were shattered by counter-revolutions and capitalist crises. By 2010 Germany had 10.8 million migrants, France 6.7 million, and Britain 6.5 million.

In 2004 the Labour government gave immediate labour market access to the nationals of the eight new central and eastern European EU members, supposedly to expand `selective migration'. Orthodox economists chorused that this would grow the economy. The Home Office said 5,000-13,000 would come. In fact, it brought the biggest wave of immigration in British history. In the next four years the government approved 928,000 Worker Registration Scheme applications, including 613,000 Poles. 1.9 million people arrived between 2000 and 2009.

The 1957 Treaty of Rome, the EEC's founding treaty, laid down "the abolition, as between Member States, of obstacles to freedom of movement of persons, services and capital." The aim was and is to create a more flexible labour market. The authors acknowledge, "by signing up to free movement provisions, EU governments have ceded sovereign authority over the entry, residence and employment of nationals of other member states."

They point out that there is no positive right to family migration, to family reunification. The EU's misleadingly titled `Right to Family Reunification' Directive does not actually provide a right to family reunification.
