"This book boasts a treasure trove of empirical examples and a primer of sorts on refugee and immigration laws, conventions, and regulations. It also offers much food for thought about the intersection of migration with individual and collective security in the 21st century." Choice "This extremely interesting monograph provides a comprehensive overview of the migration-security nexus, investigating key issues raised by this relationship and trying to overcome the uncertain and heterogeneous nature of available information in the field." International Journal of Refugee Law "In this important work, Elspeth Guild provides us with a systematic analysis of the relationship between security and migration. Guild brings together critical security studies with a new approach to migration - 'critical migration studies', providing important insights into the changing relationships between citizens and states." Stephen Castles, University of Oxford "Theoretically informed and empirically incisive, Elspeth Guild's account of the sites at which the dynamics of migration meet proliferating claims about security is at once precise and provocative. Its assessment of recent European developments is especially compelling." R. B. J. Walker, University of Victoria
