This book examines the relationship between illegal migration and globalization. Under the pressures of globalizing forces, migration law is transformed into the last bastion of sovereignty. This explains the worldwide crackdown on extra-legal migration and informs the shape this crackdown is taking. It also means that migration law reflects key facets of globalization and addresses the central debates of globalization theory. This book looks at various migration law settings, asserting that differing but related globalization effects are discernable at each location. The “core samples” interrogated in the book are drawn from refugee law, illegal labor migration, human trafficking, security issues in migration law, and citizenship law. Special attention is paid to the roles played by the European Union and the United States in setting the terms of global engagement. The book’s conclusion considers what the rule of law contributes to transformed migration law.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"...This well-written, thorougly researched volume offers an excellent scholarly contribution to the field. Its ability to offer solid interdisciplinary perspectives..., while remaining grounded in the embryonic area of migration law, is valuable. Recommended."
--J.M. Ackleson, New Mexico State University, CHOICESee more reviews
"...In her stimulating book, Catherine Dauvergne provides a multifaceted look at why the operations of national sovereignty and the formal state citizenship are inadequate, even irrational and often unjust...thoughtful, hopeful, and welcome invitation worth sharing with others, and for that reason alone, her book is a worthwhile read."
--John SW Park, Department of Asian American Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara, The Law and Politics Book Review
