Immigration policy theory research has so far been focused on the immigration politics of democratic states. While the analysis of cases in democratic contexts has provided insights on political decision-making processes, the validity of these theoretical principles has yet been affirmed when applied to semi-authoritarian or authoritarian states. In this paper, the immigration policies of Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates were analyzed to examine if the Neo-corporatist model of interest group politics theory applied to them in the formation of immigration policies.
