Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty first, millions of people have been forced to flee their homes. The causes and consequences of this and international responses to displacement lie at the very heart of world politics, however these important issues have been largely neglected by its primary discipline: International Relations.


Using real-world examples and in-depth case studies, Forced Migration and Global Politics systematically applies International Relations theory to explore the international politics of forced migration.
* Provides an accessible and thought-provoking introduction to the main debates and concepts in international relations and examines their relevance for understanding forced migration
* Utilizes a wide-range of real-world examples and in-depth case studies, including the harmonization of EU asylum and immigration policy and the securitization of asylum since 9/11
* Explores the relevance of cutting-edge debates in international relations to forced migration
