Are immigrants an asset or a threat?
Every day newspapers in the Western world carry articles about illegal immigrants, asylum seekers and other migrants. The focus of these articles varies greatly from migrants as a threat to one or another important social or societal interest, to migrants as an important asset to those same interests.
International Migration and Security" brings information and analysis to the immigration debate. Experts from a variety of different disciplines-ranging from urban planning to judicial reform-are collected n this volume to consider the impact that and the concept of immigration has on their field. The key question examined is how movement of persons affects areas as diverse as health, national security, the welfare of state, cuisine, identity, law and human rights, and the political, social and legal results.
This innovative and interdisciplinary book provides new insight into the debates around immigration in the twenty-first century and will be of interest to all students and researchers in the area.
