Owing to increased migration dating from the 1990s, Nordic countries have gone through substantial cultural and social changes, resulting in increased debate surrounding the politics of multiculturalism. One of the central realms of the discussion around multiculturalism in the Nordic region concerns the media, which is considered to be a vital factor in the construction of society's values, as well as an essential tool in the integration process of migrants, providing as it does a symbolic arena for learning about and becoming part of society. This collection draws together the latest research from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden to look at different aspects of the relationship between media and migration in the Nordic region. Exploring the role played by the media in nation building and the power of the media in the definition of who 'belongs' in society, Media in Motion examines the practices of inclusion and exclusion that characterise mainstream media representations. The book also examines the manner in which recent technological changes suggest the emergence of a transnational and cosmopolitan media landscape; a space which blurs the boundaries of the national and transnational, as well as between the public and the private, with significant implications for the ways migrants may take and become part of society. As such, it will be of interest to those working in the fields of media, race and ethnicity, colonialism and postcolonial studies, and migration.

Inside Immigration Law analyses the practice of implementing immigration law, examining the different political and organisational forces that influence the process. Based on unparalleled academic access to the German migration management system, this book provides new insights into the ’black box’ of regulating immigration, revealing how the application of immigration law to individual cases can be chaotic, improvised and sometimes arbitrary, and either informed or distorted by the complex, politically laden and changeable nature of both German and EU immigration laws. Drawing on extensive empirical material, including participant observation, interviews and analyses of public as well as confidential documents in German immigration offices, Inside Immigration Law unveils the complex practices of decision-making and work organisation in a politically contested environment. A comparative, critical evaluation of the work of offices that examines the discretion and client interactions of bureaucrats, the management of legal knowledge and symbolism and the relationships between immigration offices and external political forces, this book will be of interest to sociologists, legal scholars and political scientists working in the areas of migration, integration and the study of work and organisations.

Das Buch zu der Nacht, die Deutschland und die ganze Welt bewegt. Köln ist zur Chiffre geworden für einen Kulturschock. Die ganze Welt fragt sich: Was geschah wirklich in der Silvesternacht?Alice Schwarzer hat die zehn Stunden, in denen der Bahnhofsplatz ein rechtsfreier Raum war, minutiös recherchiert. Sie analysiert, wie es dazu kommen konnte und spannt den Bogen vom Bahnhofsplatz in Köln über den Tahrir-Platz in Kairo bis hin zum Iran Khomeinis. Sie kritisiert die falsche Toleranz mit dem politisierten Islam. Alexandra Eul recherchierte die Folgen für die Frauen. Von einem „Tahrir-Platz in Köln“ sprechen auch zwei AlgerierInnen: der Schriftsteller Kamel Daoud und die Soziologin Marieme Hélie-Lucas. Die Deutschtürkin Necla Kelek fordert eine Reform des islamischen Familienrechts. Die Islamwissenschaftlerin Rita Breuer analysiert die fatale Rolle des „Zentralrats der Muslime“ bei der Verbreitung des Scharia-Islams. Und der Deutsch-Syrer Bassam Tibi erklärt die wahren Gründe für den Syrien-Konflikt und: Warum Bomben sinnlos sind.

Der Diskurs über Sexual Correctness wird in diesem Buch mittels einer Printmedienanalyse als politisch funktionale Konstruktion eines modernisierten Antifeminismus entlarvt. Die Diskurse über Political and Sexual Correctness sind in den 90er Jahren zum kulturellen Allgemeingut geworden. Ausgehend von der These, daß es sich dabei um funktionale Medienkonstrukte handelt, geht die mit diesem Buch vorliegende Diskursanalyse meinungsbildender Printmedien den folgenden zentralen Fragen nach: Handelt es sich bei dem Sexual-Correctness-Diskurs vornehmlich um die "Modernisierung" alter sexistischer Stereotypen? Welche Muster sprachlicher Inszenierung ermöglichten es, daß sich ein neuer, vehementer Antifeminismus so erfolgreich gegen Kritik immunisieren konnte? Entlang der unterschiedlichen Aspekte - vom Beschäftigtenschutzgesetz bis zum Film "Der Campus" - analysiert das Buch die Hintergründe und Strategien dieses Themas.
