'The book gives anybody interested in, or working with, these issues a solid basis for refuting claims of non-applicability of international obligations of states in these situations and does so without departing from sound legal research and findings ... This book is most certainly a valuable tool for academics, practitioners and students alike.' Kristina Touzenis, International Journal of Refugee Law

This volume critically examines the globalisation of migration control and states' obligations under international refugee law.
