About this item

A gap in critical border and migration scholarship has been that empirical and theoretical advancements are rarely translated into concrete proposals for critical interventions or practical solutions. Migration Policy and Practice fills this gap and is organized around the core argument that critical interventions and practical solutions must be developed to complement explanatory analyses. A multidisciplinary array of contributors provide practical and conceptual tools to engage the contemporary developments related to migration, borders, refugee issues, and citizenship. The contributors examine multiple national contexts, including Canada, the United States, the Schengen area, and Israel, and explore diverse policies and practices related to citizenship, refugees, and the treatment of particular ethnic groups at international, national, local, and urban scales. This book comes at a time when there is a historical and political need among policy makers, researchers, and activists for such interventions and solutions.
