Over the past decade, a global convergence in migration policies has emerged, and with it a new, mean-spirited politics of immigration. It is now evident that the idea of a settler society, previously an important landmark in understanding migration, is a thing of the past. What are the consequences of this shift for how we imagine immigration? And for how we regulate it? This book analyzes the dramatic shift away from the settler society paradigm in light of the crisis of asylum, the fear of Islamic fundamentalism, and the demise of multiculturalism. What emerges is a radically original take on the new global politics of immigration that can explain policy paralysis in the face of rising death tolls, failing human rights arguments, and persistent state desires to treat migration as an economic calculus.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"In this book, Dauvergne critically rethinks the relationship between territorial sovereignty, international trade and human rights, arguing that the comfortable distinction between 'us and them' should be rejected in our fast-paced world."
Francois Crépeau, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, and Oppenheimer Professor in Public International Law, McGill University, MontréalSee more reviews
"If we are to break free from international policy paralysis in the face of mass migration, we need a new narrative of belonging and mobility. In this book, Catherine Dauvergne lays out a series of avenues for further intellectual, legal and popular investigation, while mindful of the barriers such endeavours are likely to face."
Mary Bosworth, University of Oxford
'Given the front page stories around the world about migration, this book couldn’t come at a better time.' R. A. Harper, Choice
