The Oxford Handbook of Migration Crises

Edited by Dr. Cecilia Menjívar, Dr. Marie Ruiz, Dr. Immanuel Ness

The objective of The Oxford Handbook of Migration Crises is to deconstruct, question, and redefine through a critical lens what is commonly understood as "migration crises." The volume covers a wide range of historical, economic, social, political, and environmental conditions that generate migration crises around the globe. At the same time, it illuminates how the media and public officials play a major role in framing migratory flows as crises. The volume brings together an exceptional group of scholars from around the world to critically examine migration crises and to revisit the
notion of crisis through the context in which permanent and non-permanent migration flows occur.
