Deadly Voyages
Migrants the world over have been compelled to make deadly voyages to escape harsh conditions in pursuit of a better life. Whether it is fatal journey made by “Boat People” to Australia; migrants desperately crossing the Mediterranean; Syrian refugees converging at the frontiers of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt; or unaccompanied minors from “Northern Triangle” nations trekking thousands of miles on to enter the United States via Mexico; their vulnerability is certain. Many fall prey to traffickers, smugglers, violence, exploitation and death. For instance, Amnesty International reports that, at the current rate of 2.7 deaths per every 100 people, 2017 promises to be the deadliest year for refugees crossing the Mediterranean. Despite the increasing number of deaths of forced migrants, international law and communities struggle with coordinating socio-legal and humanitarian efforts to effectively address the current global migrant crisis. The purpose of this forthcoming book is to examine the efficacy of international, regional, national and local responses to deadly voyages of forced migrants globally. Interested authors should send a title (12 words maximum); brief description of your proposed chapter (300-500 words maximum); and a CV to no later than 30 November 2017.
