This concluding chapter returns to the “crises of closure” presented earlier in this book as well as the state responses to these crises. It argues that national closure, rather than being a unidirectional process, is subject to periodic crises of closure, encompassing both closure-as-entry and closure-as-access to goods. Examining these crises give insight into the ways in which membership is defined and redefined. Each of these three propositions is examined in light of the empirical evidence presented in the previous chapters. Furthermore, the chapter also turns to the broader question of how diversity and nationalism can affect the welfare state, taking into account the insights advanced so far in this book.

Keywords:   crises of closure, national closure, diversity, nationalism, crisis response, welfare state
