Summary
  • This volume addresses new tendencies related to migration from a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean perspective and with an emphasis on security and citizenship. Contributors aim not only to intervene in scholarly debates surrounding citizenship and migration but also to contribute to policy-oriented discussions related to migration.
  • 'Vital to host country economies and often systematically marginalized both economically and politically, migrants represent a paradigmatic example of the way Others are simultaneously captured by and excluded within host communities. In the wake of ongoing turmoil in the Arab region and the continuing economic crisis in Europe, this volume renders a timely and insightful contribution to the debate over migration and its attendant politics, offering new perspective on the inextricable questions of migrants' human rights and the politicization of migration in host countries.' - Andrea Teti, Director, Centre for Global Security and Governance, University of Aberdeen, UK "This volume brings together astute studies to tackle an explosive subject at this time of radical changes in the Middle East. Citizenship, migration, and security-an absolutely essential triangle to understand a complex context." - Salam Kawakibi, Deputy Director, Arab Reform Initiative, France "A paucity of research has addressed in a comprehensive manner interrelated aspects crucial to understanding and assessing migratory dynamics in and from the Middle East: the interface between migration and political processes from the perspective of the sending state and the receiving state, and the role of non-state actors in recasting migration and political agendas. This book makes a major inter- and cross-disciplinary contribution in this regard." - Tamirace Fakhoury, Assistant Professor of Political Sciences, Lebanese American University, Lebanon and Visiting Assistant Professor, University of California, Berkeley, USA

Summary expansion
This volume examines the implications of migration into and from the Middle East with a particular focus on the significance of migration movements, policy reactions, and questions concerning human rights, governance, and citizenship in relation to policy making processes. The contributors cover different yet interrelated fields of migration research, presenting new perspectives on migration and security in the Middle East and showing the ways in which recent developments challenge our traditional interpretations of migration. They also discuss how migratory movements in the Middle East raise new questions related to human rights, governance, and citizenship, which demonstrate that lack of representation and political inclusion - already a systemic problem in the Middle East - is even more relevant with respect to migrant populations
