From the Paper:

"In an era of globalisation, the question of immigration would seem to be moot; however, it is anything but that. As governments grapple with ways to accommodate their original citizens with new ones, the issue of immigration has taken on a more, rather than less, cogent appearance. Indeed, in many places, immigration hard-liners have been responding to the coming and going across national borders with varieties of 'hardliner' responses. In 2002, Jean-Marie Le Pen exploited the issue to run second in France's presidential elections; in the Netherlands, straight talk on the issue by the late Pim Fortuyns forced the government into a coalition with his party. This strong showing suggests that German conservative Edmund Stoiber can maintain power in his party. The politicians have, for the most part, contended that they were responding, with their anti-immigration stances, to public sentiment. "
