This book encapsulates the law of international migration, including emerging issues such as the protection of human rights where tension between anti-terrorism legislation and immigration measures increases. The human rights of vulnerable groups of migrants, such as migrant workers, women, victims of trafficking, and stateless persons are also addressed. Forced migration warrants a consideration of the International Migration Law relating to groups such as internally displaced persons, as well as the international community's response to secondary movements of asylum-seekers. Questions of state responsibility concerning, for example, stranded migrants and provision of consular protection and assistance to migrants are also discussed. Moreover, the expansion of regional legal frameworks concerned with migration, such as EU immigration and asylum law and policy and the growing case law on European citizenship, as well as developments in free movement regimes, are added to the analysis of the growing body of international migration law.
