Summary

This text surveys the historical origins of contemporary immigration and refugee law. This casebook provides several theoretical frameworks for normative critique. 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.
