Further information

‘This book, offers an outstanding collection of learned essays from over thirty expert contributors – including the editors – from top universities, government bodies and institutions worldwide. . . In this volume of almost 700 pages, there is much food for thought for the researcher and an almost endless supply of valuable references in the copious footnoting throughout. What a time saver! Additionally, there’s a detailed index of almost twenty-three pages at the back. From graduate students, to seasoned international practitioners, anyone involved in the often extremely difficult human rights issues generated by migration will appreciate the book’s practical as well as scholarly approach to this sensitive, diverse and increasingly complex area of law. The book therefore makes an important contribution to current literature on the subject.’
– Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine

Migration is a complex and multifaceted issue, and the current legal framework suffers from considerable ambiguity and lack of cohesive focus. This Handbook offers a comprehensive take on the intersection of law and migration studies and provides strategies for better understanding the potential of international legal norms in regulating migration. Authoritative analyses by the most renowned and knowledgeable experts in the field focus on important migration issues and challenge the current normative framework with new ways of thinking about the topic.

The book examines the many facets of migration from an international law perspective. Topics discussed include the relationship between migration and state sovereignty, the human rights of migrants, human trafficking, migrant workers, refugees and internal displacement. The expert contributors hail from a number of diverse international law backgrounds (including refugee law, human rights law, humanitarian law, labour law, WTO law and others), allowing them to synthesize many different perspectives and present a comprehensive, cohesive and timely study of a complicated and fractured topic.

The Research Handbook on International Law and Migration provides a critical examination of migration and international law, identifying the issues still to be tackled and suggesting further developments to be made. It will appeal to advanced and postgraduate students, academics and policymakers.
