As in other Wester European countries, immigration has been one of the hottest and most enduring issues in the political debate in Denmark. But what are the overall conditions under which immigration takes place, and what are the economic implications of the immigration for the Danish welfare state? 

In Immigration to Denmark, the British demographer David Coleman places immigration in an international framework, describing the importance of global population trends for international migration, together with the main destinations of the migrations, and, in particular, the migration streams to Europe. Coleman also discusses international treaties and national laws as means of regulating migration towards the European continent.
