Elgar Handbook on Migration and Global Justice

Elgar Handbook on Migration and Global Justice

MMIC’s Associate Professor Leanne Weber has teamed with long-time Border Crossing Observatory and MMIC collaborator Associate Professor Claudia Tazreiter, to produce the Handbook of Migration and Global Justice which will be published by Edward Elgar. This handbook will bring together cutting-edge contributions from leading international scholars and commentators from a range of disciplinary and geo-political perspectives. An editorial introduction will set out key conceptual developments including perceptions of crisis at the border, rising nationalism and hostility towards migrants, the emergence of enemy penology, the creation of invisible populations, the shift from biopolitics to necropolitics, carceral and colonial logics, erosion of human rights protections, structural violence, extraterritoriality and everyday bordering. The editors’ contribution will also set out possible visions of global justice, including changing conceptions of national sovereignty, the emergence of global civil society, efforts to transform borders from below, and promising prospects in international law that might usher in more inclusive forms of global governance. Contributors have been asked to address one or more of these substantive themes and to provide both a critique of current practices (particularly in sections 1-3) and a positive vision for a more globally just world (particularly in section 4).
