[en] The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg within its current borders was established in the end of 19th century. In the space of less than 150 years the population of this state more than doubled - largely attributable to immigration. Today, 48% of the population are foreigners.
We would like to argue that the current immigration policy of Luxembourg is based on the strategy of accommodation. We can identify three major pillars of this strategy. The first pillar creates welcome conditions to adaptation within the host society. The second pillar brings liberal provisions for naturalization and the third pillar offers open and generous admission of refugees.
