“It is a superb example of academic erudition at its best. For several decades, students have trawled through international relations theories but how many have applied them to such pressing contemporary global issues? For teachers of forced migration studies, this will be an invaluable resource. Forced Migration and Global Politics should be required reading for undergraduates and postgraduates alike.”  (Journal of Intercultural Studies, 21 February 2013)

 

"A book of stunning breadth, analyzing past and ongoing efforts, both theoretical and practical, to understand and address the blight of forced migration."
Thomas G. Weiss, Presidential Professor and Director, Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies, The CUNY Graduate Center

"Forced Migration and Global Politics represents the first serious attempt to apply the tools of international relations to study the global politics of forced migration. While written as a textbook for undergraduate students the volume should be of much interest to senior scholars and policy makers interested in the politics of forced migration."
Bhupinder Chimni, Jawaharlal Nehru University
