Abstract

International migration is a worldwide phenomenon whose scope, intensity and impact are constantly growing. The Handbook on International Migration presents the current state of studies on migration in the broad sense, which includes migrant settlement policies and practices aimed at regulating migration activities. The review of the book shows that it fails to address the subject of migrants who have temporarily or permanently resided in one nation but, in the event of a crisis, seek to relocate to a third country for a certain period; in such circumstances, how does the third country react to such migrants? Secondly, the book analyses the historical analysis of past migration trends and reasons, but does this affect future migration scenarios? If so, how should governments and relevant policymakers react to the development of their laws and policies? Despite all these limitations, the chapters are designed to offer a unique multidisciplinary perspective on migration to researchers, policymakers, and development practitioners.
