As the law and politics of migration become increasingly intertwined, this thought-provoking Research Handbook addresses the challenge of analysing their relationship. Discussing the evolving theoretical approaches to migration, it explores the growing attention given to the legal frameworks for migration and the expansion of regulation, as migration moves to the centre of the global political agenda.
The Research Handbook demonstrates that the overlap between law and politics puts the rule of law at risk in matters of migration as advocates around the globe increasingly turn to law to address the challenges of new migration politics. Presenting a fresh mapping of current issues in the field, it focusses on institutions of migration and analyses the securitization of migration management and the strengths and weaknesses of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
Written by leading scholars specialising in a range of disciplines, the Research Handbook on the Law and Politics of Migration will be an illuminating read for academics and students of migration studies with backgrounds in law, politics, criminology, sociology, history, geography and beyond.
