The Responsibility to Protect: Closing the Gaps in the International Protection Regime / Erika Feller.Summary: "The international protection regime for refugees and other forced migrants seems increasingly at risk as measures designed to enhance security of borders, of people, of institutions, and of national identity encroach upon human rights. This timely edited collection responds to some of the contemporary challenges faced by the international protection regime, with a particular focus on the human rights of those displaced. The book begins by assessing the impact of anti-terrorism laws on refugee status, both at the international and domestic levels, before turning to examine the function of offshore immigration control mechanisms and extraterritorial processing on asylum seekers' access to territory and entitlements." -- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Migration and development : achieving policy coherence. /

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland International Organization for Migration 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.iom.int/jahia/Jahia/cache/offonce/pid/1674?entryId=19847' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:55:59 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "Policy coherence between migration and development agendas is of increasing interest in current times; there is growing recognition that migration policies should support rather than hinder investment in international development. The United Nations High-Level Dialogue of September 2006 and the Global Forum on Migration and Development of July 2007 both raised the attention given to this issue. > Now that the interface between migration and development has been recognized, the challenge is to turn this interest into working-level policies and programmes. The aim of this study is to build on existing international research and take the analysis to the next higher level showing how these connections can be made in practice. Policy makers often focus on remittances as the main means of translating the migration-development nexus into reality. However, this paper shows that there are many stages in the migration cycle, from departure to return and reintegration back home, that present opportunities to make migration more development friendly and, conversely, to raise development awareness of migration factors." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Migration, development and environment . /

by Hugo, Graeme.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland International Organization for Migration 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.iom.int/jahia/Jahia/cache/offonce/pid/1674?entryId=20403' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:58:44 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "This paper explores the conceptual framework of the interrelationships between migration, environment and development through an analysis of the current literature. It offers an in-depth analysis of the various permutations of this relationship: a) environment as a cause of migration, in particular environmental disasters and environmental degradation; b) climate change and migration; c) displacement by large projects; d) impacts of migration on destination environments. The implications these have for policy are considered. " -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
