This chapter discusses the financial crisis of 2008 in showing how the economic turmoil presents an opportunity to assess the contribution of multilevel governance to the stable inclusion of foreign residents. In particular, economic crises can reverse local demand for foreign labor, incur costs on a national population, and possibly evoke anti-immigrant backlash, all in ways that call into question the resiliency of institutions established under better times together with the public attitudes that support them. In relation to this claim, the chapter examines the political and policy responses of Japan, Italy, Korea, and Spain regarding immigration and anti-immigrant political mobilization during the crisis.

Keywords:   financial crisis, multilevel governance, immigration, anti-immigrant, foreign residents, political mobilization
