The volume addresses challenging and under-researched themes on the subject of migration.

All of the chapters illustrate the importance of drawing on the tools of political theory to clarifying, criticize and challenge the current terms of the migration debate. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/migration-in-political-theory-9780198843085?q=9780198843085&cc=us&lang=en#
