Reviews

"Human Rights, Migration, and Social Conflict makes a cogent argument for the extension of principles of nondiscrimination and equality that are part of numerous human rights conventions. This volume provides a useful focus on the links between globalization and migration, the process of criminalizing migrants, and the spectrum of resulting egregious human rights violations that have been ignored by receiving countries."

Katherine Fennelly, professor, Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota

"Bringing human rights to the center of state immigration policy, Estévez's critical analysis shows that states' understanding of, relationship to, and systemic denial of migrants' human rights are central to the experiences of both the population of the receiving country and, importantly, of the immigrants themselves. This is an important volume."

David L. Brunsma, professor, Department of Sociology, Virginia Tech
