Migration, Security, and Citizenship in the Middle East: New Perspectives (Modern Muslim World) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume examines the implications of migration into and from the Middle East with a particular focus on the significance of migration movements, policy reactions, and questions concerning human rights, governance, and citizenship in relation to policy making processes. The contributors cover different yet interrelated fields of migration research, presenting new perspectives on migration and security in the Middle East and showing the ways in which recent developments challenge our traditional interpretations of migration. They also discuss how migratory movements in the Middle East raise new questions related to human rights, governance, and citizenship, which demonstrate that lack of representation and political inclusion - already a systemic problem in the Middle East - is even more relevant with respect to migrant populations.
