Laura Gonzalez-Murphy offers a timely analysis of the changing role played by civil society in the formulation and implementation of government policies in general and migration policy in particular. Using Mexico as her primary case study because of the recent impact of immigrants on its legislation and the historical evolution of its institutions, Gonzalez-Murphy details the ways that civil society has become a participant in immigration policy changes, including Mexicos new migration law. Mexicos experience is also closely compared with countries presently experiencing similar immigration and political dynamics, such as Spain and Italy, and with Latin American countries that have had a similar historical experience with immigration.
