Immigration and Refugee Law is the most up-to-date book of its kind. This ambitious text surveys the historical origins of contemporary immigration and refugee law. Using carefully selected excerpts from the writings of leading scholars, and commentary by the learned author team, this casebook provides several theoretical frameworks for normative critique, offering students various perspectives in a cohesive and comprehensible manner.
National migration law and policy is examined in a global context, and brings to the surface race, gender, and class dimensions.
Current issues of domestic refugee law and pressures on the international refugee regime are explored. The authors also highlight the links between security concerns and immigration post 9/11, and draw connections to broader trends.
