Global governance is particularly concerned about migration and asylum issues. Immigrants, Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Times of Crises: A. An International Handbook on Migration and Refugee Studies, Management Policies and Governance offers a comprehensive and cutting-edge analysis of international migration and asylum research and studies under multi-disciplinary approaches. The contributors are leading scholars, academics and researchers, practitioners, policymakers and experts in the field of Immigration and Refugee Studies, who provide understandings on issues and direct their focus to future key issues in national and global governance, research and policy. The Handbook is structured into six central sectors:

  • Theoretical approaches and contextualisation of migration and asylum issues.
  • Migration and refugee reception, border and management policies and governance.
  • Migrant and refugee experiences, forced migration and displacement, precarity and vulnerability.
  • Irregular migration and migrant smuggling.
  • Human rights, social justice and discrimination.
  • Collectivities and solidarity.

The Handbook addresses a global challenge: how to interpret and manage the flows of refugees and different types of migrants, safeguard their access to and protection of their rights and address issues of migrant and refugee integration policy. This innovative Handbook responds to the need for a better understanding of migration and asylum, utilising contemporary information from a broad range of disciplines. Immigrants, Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Times of Crises: A. An International Handbook on Migration and Refugee Studies, Management Policies and Governance provides an overview on the different aspects worldwide, being a useful source for novice but also experienced readers, students and professionals working on migration and asylum.
