Borders of Hospitality. The Difficult Birth of a Multicultural Society
(Marc Hooghe) The Low Countries - 2001, № 9, pp. 94-107
Large-scale migrations have always been a feature of the Low Countries, with Belgium and the Netherlands in turn receiving and sending out various groups of migrants. Hooghe takes a look at decolonisation, employment-driven migration, and the new ‘third wave' of migrants (asylum seekers) in Belgium and the Netherlands.He also analyses the debate in this multicultural arena, and writes about the matters of integration and curtailment. But despite all cultural and political considerations, it is economic requirements that determine where the borders of hospitality are set in the Low Countries.
