CRN 11: Upcoming Publication

Edited by Veronica Fynn Bruey and Steven W. Bender, Deadly Voyages: Migrant Journeys Across the Globe, explores the burdens and impact of perilous migration, while considering which laws, policies, practices, and venues might establish empathy and protection for migrants. This interdisciplinary volume envisions and calls for a transformation in migration policy, motivated by the common goal of drastically reducing the peril migrants face when compelled to make their treacherous journeys.
