New release | ‘Governing Migration for Development from the Global Souths’

The 14th thematic volume of International Development Policy provides perspectives through case studies from the global South(s) focusing on the challenges and opportunities of governing migration on multiple levels: the subnational, national, regional and international. It explores existing and new policies and frameworks in terms of their successes and best practices, and looks at them through the lens of additional challenges, such as those brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the rise of nationalisms and an increase in xenophobia. The chapters also take the ‘5 Ps’ approach to sustainable development (people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnerships) and assess how migration policies serve sustainable development in a rapidly evolving context.

A powerful and challenging collection that offers a depth of empirical and conceptual insight in order to demonstrate the need both to think about and understand international migration from perspectives of the ‘global south’.’

Governing Migration for Development from the Global Souths is an excellent volume that addresses and unpacks the governance-migration-sustainable development nexus in the global Souths. It maps distinct ways in which global South states are involved in and create new forms of migration governance that tend to be overlooked in analyses of multilevel governance that primarily reflect the concerns of the global North.  The present volume is a must read for anyone interested in the role of the global Souths in migration governance.
