This chapter first examines the interconnection between two dimensions of migration: the external dimension regulating territorial conditions of access; and the internal dimension regulating the rights and obligations of persons living legally in the country. It provides a short overview of migration and asylum legislation, with examples from the selected countries. The chapter also investigates the ways in which public regulation of and debates about multiculturalism and ‘integration’ are gendered, focusing on two issues: forced and arranged marriages; and the headscarf/hijab. The examples show that migrant women live under different pressures, yet young women are often able to navigate between the majority norms and their own family culture, between claims for gender equality and rights to cultural respect. The chapter demonstrates the gendered implications of the different approaches to migration and multiculturalism.
