In this chapter, we review the recent history of immigration to Spain—from its past as a labor-exporting country to its transformation into a recipient of major foreign flows. Reasons for this transformation are discussed, and data illustrating the evolution of immigration in recent years are examined. Available information on the growth of foreign-origin students in the Spanish educational system and the early research literature focused on this phenomenon are also reviewed. The chapter closes with a review of the Spanish literature on the country’s model of integration of its immigrants and their offspring as well as its practical and theoretical implications.
