UN Global Compacts : Governing Migrants and Refugees, Hardback Book

UN Global Compacts : Governing Migrants and Refugees Hardback

Part of the Global Institutions series



UN Global Compacts is a concise introduction to the key concepts, issues, and actors in global migration governance and presents a comprehensive analysis of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, the Global Compact on Refugees, and the Global Compact for Migration.

The book places the declaration and compacts within their historical context, traces the evolution of global migration governance, and evaluates the implementation of the compacts.

Ultimately, the global compacts were the result of three wider shifts in global governance from hard to soft law, from rights to aid, and from Cold War politics to nationalism.

The book is an important contribution to international relations and migration studies and provides essential information on the NY declaration and the global compacts, in addition to an examination of the:* Negotiating blocs and strategies* Populist backlash to the Global Compact for Migration* Responsibility sharing for refugee protection* Human rights of migrants* Principle of non-refoulement* Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework* UNHCR, IOM, and the UN Network on MigrationThe book will be of interest to practitioners, students, and scholars of international cooperation, global governance, migrants, and refugees, and will be essential reading for graduate and undergraduate courses on international law, international organizations, and migration.
