This timely Handbook brings together leading international scholars from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and geopolitical perspectives to interrogate the intersections between migration and global justice. It explores how cross-border mobility and migration have been affected by rapid economic, cultural and technological globalisation, addressing the pressing questions of global justice that arise as governments respond to unprecedented levels of global migration.
 
Chapters analyse the key issues arising from tensions between international and national priorities, duties and laws, as well as visions for human coexistence and harmony. Featuring chapters written by researchers, political activists and contributors with lived experience of migration injustice, the Handbook explores central topics including failures in refugee protection, worker exploitation and violence against migrants. Looking ahead, it also discusses possible pathways to achieve global justice in and through migration, in terms of geopolitics, subjective experience, human rights and redistributive justice, global solidarity and political activism.
 
Combining empirical case studies with cutting-edge theory, this Handbook will be an invaluable resource for scholars and students of migration, human rights and public policy. The application of the global justice concept to issues of migration and border control will also be useful for policy makers, practitioners and NGOs in these areas.

Critical Acclaim
‘Handbook of Migration and Global Justice brings together an impressive assemblage of migration scholars to analyze how nation-states have transformed immigration into crises that call forth intensified protection of both state boundaries and national identities. Truly global in scope, and firmly grounded in the political economy of labour and the politics of human rights, this book offers new insights into the subterranean forces and structural arrangements animating the largest human migration in history, as well as the ineffectual and routinely inhumane responses many destination nations have mobilized to thwart human needs for mobility. It is a must read for those interested in the cutting-edge of migration scholarship.’
– Raymond J. Michalowski, Northern Arizona University, US

‘This is an important book that brings together normative and empirical considerations about the intersections of migration with global justice – and of migrants as workers and as carriers of rights. This Handbook is particularly timely in the light of the pandemic crisis which has highlighted the many contradictions involved between the global migration regime and migrants’ rights. A must-have for researchers and students.’
– Anna Triandafyllidou, Ryerson University, Canada
