This innovative Handbook sets out a conceptual and analytical framework for the critical appraisal of migration governance. Global and interdisciplinary in scope, the chapters are organised across six key themes: conceptual debates; categorisations of migration; governance regimes; processes; spaces of migration governance; and mobilisations around it.

Leading international contributors critically assess categorisations and conceptualisations of migration, to address theoretical concerns including transnationalism and de-colonisation, climate change, development, humanitarianism, bordering, technologies and the role of time. They closely examine practices of migration governance and politics, and their effects, across diverse spaces, processes and forms of mobilisation. They draw on up-to-date examples from across the globe in order to examine how migrants, whether forced or voluntary, are governed. Reviewing the latest developments in migration governance research through empirically rich and conceptually concise appraisals, the Handbook problematises orthodox perspectives and discusses how a critical reading can add to our understanding of the governance and politics of migration.

This Handbook is an invaluable resource for scholars and students of migration, human rights and public policy. Its interdisciplinary approach and wide range of empirical examples will also be useful for policy makers in these fields.
Critical Acclaim
‘A great line up of contributors provide rich, informative, engaged and engaging analyses of how governance systems through their operation and effects, as well as their inclusion and omissions, play a key role in shaping migration and the ways in which we understand it as a social and political challenge. It is a testament to the editors and contributors that they have put together such an inspiring collection of essays that expertly synthesise existing debates while setting agendas for future research.’
