The Dynamics of Regional Migration Governance

About the eBook

The growing salience of migration in today's political and economic climate has drawn attention to the relevance of regional responses to global human mobility. This unique book explores the dynamics of migration governance beyond the traditional perspective of the state and examines why, how and with what effects states cooperate at a regional level on aspects of international migration and mobility. Developing an innovative approach centered on the organisation of migration governance, The Dynamics of Regional Migration Governance provides a comparative analysis of developments in regional and sub-regional migration governance on a truly global scale.

From Africa, Asia-Pacific and Central Asia, to Europe, the Middle East and North and South America, leading scholars offer a fresh understanding of the trajectories and particularities of regional migration governance. These engaging chapters show how human mobility and its governance can create tensions between states that hinder or prevent cooperation. Providing a much-needed shift from a focus on governance outputs to governance processes, this compelling book highlights how regional practices, processes and structures of migration governance can play an active role in producing understandings of international migration as a social and political issue.

Deploying geographical scope, conceptual insight and empirical depth, this comprehensive book is ideal for advanced students, as well as scholars investigating regionalism, migration and mobility. An acutely relevant work, it will also appeal to professional practitioners and policymakers working in international migration

'This is a unique and forward-looking book that looks at regional migration governance from a dynamic and multi-level perspective beyond formal regional institutions, focusing also on non-state actors. This collection is also unique in that it covers a number of world regions including Asia and Latin America and not just the usual suspects of EU and North America. I strongly recommend this work to students and scholars and, why not, practitioners working in the area of governance, migration, and international relations.'
