Reviews

'This book examines the global picture of forced migration...It first sets the refugee question in a global context, combining historical analysis with an insight into contemporary political cultures. It goes on to look at a number of current issues surrounding asylum, and studies the role the nation-state has to play. Finally it examines the concepts of displacement and flight, concluding with a case for the policy of open oborders. It also offers a critical analysis of refugee policy in Europe, North America and Australia ' - Oxfam Development Resource Review
