Reviews

'The development of effective and just policies on poverty, international migration and asylum is already one of the biggest challenges for policymakers in the twenty-first century. In such rapidly moving fields, this book is a useful and accessible resource for all those attempting to address these complex issues. It will be invaluable to students and researchers internationally and throughout the social sciences, as well as to national, regional and global policymakers.' - Ann Singleton, Centre for the Study of Poverty and Social Justice, School for Policy Studies, University of Bristol, UK

'The central challenge of the poverty, migration and asylum nexus is to ensure adequate protection for asylum seekers and refugees while managing migration in line with national priorities in sending and receiving countries. Presenting global aspects, consequences and case studies illustrating this nexus, this book provides an excellent interdisciplinary overview of one of the most compelling issues of our times.' - Dr Thomas Lothar Weiss, Editor-in-Chief of the World Migration Report, International Organization for Migration

'[This book] has few parallels in the breadth and depth of its treatment of contemporary issues in migration. It will satisfy those who thirst for analytical rigour and factual evidence in making up their minds about the complex causes and consequences of migration.' - Manolo I. Abella, Director, International Migration Programme, International Labour Office, Geneva
