‘This collection includes contributions from some of the most important scholars working in the area of migration studies. The focus is especially timely, given the crises within the European and American systems but equally this book does not shy away from exposing the varying degrees of power and influence within regions and where institutions still fall far short of their mission to govern migration flows. This ambitious collection offers an original mix of countries and institutions rarely found in one volume. It is fresh, analytically rich, and above all a most useful reference point for students and scholars alike.’

‘This volume offers the first systematic attempt to analyse the role of regional groupings in the area of migration, offering a compelling framework for comparative analysis of the structures and processes of governing migration. It makes a vital step in scoping and framing a new research agenda on regional migration governance.’
– Christina Boswell, University of Edinburgh, UK
'The regional features of migration patterns and processes have long been important for scholars and policymakers in understanding migration trends, impacts and trajectories, as well as migration possibilities. Critical analysis of regional migration governance has been more muted. Coming right on the eve of the implementation phase of the Global Compact on Migration, this book guides us through variations and particularities in regional migration governance globally. It will certainly become a go-to resource for researchers, policymakers and practitioners alike.'
– Marie McAuliffe, Australian National University and the International Organization for Migration, Switzerland
‘This is a unique and forward-looking book that looks at regional migration governance from a dynamic and multi-level perspective beyond formal regional institutions, focusing also on non-state actors. This collection is also unique in that it covers a number of world regions including Asia and Latin America and not just the usual suspects of EU and North America. I strongly recommend this work to students and scholars and, why not, practitioners working in the area of governance, migration, and international relations.’
