For anyone concerned with understanding the complex factors behind contemporary migration and its impact on international refugee law, and especially for those attempting to develop policies to manage migration, this book makes a valuable contribution. This collection of articles from a wide range of contributors of diverse academic disciplines and experiences is a product of the project NIROMP (New International Regime for Orderly Movements of People), operating under the auspices of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and directed by Bimal Ghosh, who is well known to the migration academic community for his previous, extensive work in this area.
