ABSTRACT
The article presents a comparative analysis of governmental immigrant integration policies in three countries, focusing on their evolution in response to changing priorities. The policies of Great Britain, France and the U.S. are discussed. It is noted that official proclamations of policy goals are often only loosely related to actual practice. The French model, which emphasizes the individual, is said to have evolved in response to immigration from North Africa. The British approach is characterized as multicultural, and is said to be based on a consensus between the country's two dominant political parties. U.S. policy is said to have evolved from passive to actively managed assimilation.
