This collection takes stock of the important legal scholarship devoted to the multifaceted impact of international law on migration. It highlights the great diversity of the legal literature and provides a representative and didactic mapping of the key issues and rules at stake.

The selected papers explore the core notions of movement, sovereignty and globalization, the complex and conflicting issues raised by alienage, citizenship and the rule of law as well as the main controversies surrounding the legal protection of migrant workers and refugees in contemporary international law.

The original introduction by the editor illuminates these important issues in this highly relevant topic.
