Reviews

'This is a valuable, well documented and scholarly contribution. Its greatest strengths lie in its analysis of the European attempts to combine national and international interest through the European Union.' - Journal of Population Research

'The Politics of International Migration Management is essential reading for international migration scholars, including students at the graduate level.' - Population, Space and Place

'This is a book that should most definitely be read by students and scholars alike, but it will also be informative and thought-provoking for practitioners both within and outside government.' - Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies

'A comprehensive, innovative and detailed panorama of the complex institutional and policy factors which, beyond political rhetoric, determine why and how migration flows are allowed in, diverted or blocked, and how migrants are treated.' - François Crépeau, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, Hans & Tamar Oppenheimer Professor in Public International Law, McGill University, Montréal, Canada

'This book is a pioneering volume on the development of a new global discourse on migration. It explains what is at stake for international organizations and regional actors and shows what happens concretely on the ground in the name of "migration management.' - Virginie Guiraudon, Research Professor, French National Centre for Scientific Research, Sciences-Po, Paris, France

''Migration management' is typically treated as win-win-win for sending and receiving states and migrants themselves. This fascinating and important volume brings together established and emerging scholars to subject 'migration management' to much needed critical scrutiny. Offering insights into the discourses, practices and key actors in international migration governance, it is a must read for everyone interested in the intersection between migration policy and theory.' - Bridget Anderson, Deputy Director, Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), University of Oxford, UK

'The collection provides the basis for the study of 'migration management'. It demystifies the various facets and complex interrelationships between management, freedom and control that underpin the practices and discourses attached to it, thus contributing to a better understanding of the notion.' Journal of Refugee Studies
