Deadly Voyages: Migrant Journeys Across the Globe

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. All contributors to this volume agree on the inadequacy of current approaches and the dire need for change in global migration law and policy. Therefore, the book seeks to inform, educate, persuade, and facilitate newer or less-heard perspectives, toward wider participation and influence within the forced migration policy debate. Guided by the famous advice of Karl Marx that the point should be changing the world rather than merely analyzing or interpreting it, the contributors suggest practical measures to fix the current gap in responses to migrant peril, along with strategies for diagnosing, countering, and promoting human dignity and social justice, with the aim of preventing future deaths and injuries in migrant journeys across the globe.

Humans are a migratory species. Migration has enriched the world in so many ways. It has also brought out the worst among humankind. Deadly Voyages provides a collection of carefully studied accounts of the trials and tribulations of migration. It provides readers a deeper perspective into the human failings around migration and the resulting divisions and harms.

An extremely timely and invaluable contribution to migration policy and scholarship. It offers a vivid and incisive account of migrants forced to take treacherous voyages by bringing together compelling empirical materials across the globe. This interdisciplinary book deserves wider readership among those interested in gaining deep insights into the dilemma and aspirations embedded in these journeys.

Deadly Voyages is a must-read text for anyone seeking to fully understand the true scale and multi-faceted impact of displacement in today’s seemingly ever-hostile world.
— Ben Hudson, University of Lincoln

Civil unrest, poverty, violence and climate disasters are driving more and more people to migrate in search of safety. Laws and policies are increasingly exclusionary and cruel. This incredible collection of writings details the struggles migrating peoples experience across many continents and offers thoughtful analysis of existing legal frameworks along with new ways of addressing barriers to migrants’ safety. Let us hope these powerful writings help to change laws and policies in favor of safety, sanity, inclusion and care.

The multi-disciplinary contributors offer a refreshing multi-focal perspective on migration studies. This book is a must read for scholars, practitioners, policymakers and students of migration studies!
Leander Kandilige, University of Ghana

At the heart of this book lies the call for a more humane world. This is not only a call to politicians and policymakers, but also to every person to open their hearts and minds in an era where denial is a first response.
Sarah Malotane Henkeman, author of Disrupting Denial: Analysing Narratives of Invisible/Visible Violence and Trauma

This book’s strength lies in the critical analysis of the various facets of dangerous migration and it serves as a single destination for scholars and students interested in understanding the nuances of a sub-discipline.
Sam Agblorti, University of Cape Coast

At a time where the displacement of large numbers of people due to divergent factors converges with the heightening anti-immigration sentiments in the supposedly “safe havens,” this book triggers a conversation on the practices and policies that shape the often-perilous nature of the migrant’s journey. The incisive analyses, from divergent perspectives, not only identify the perils in the migrant’s journey but also locate opportunities to enhance the safety of migrants. A great contribution to the discourse on migrant rights and migrant policy.
Phillip Garjay Innis, University of Bonn

This book offers an interdisciplinary, poignant and critical analysis of the migrants’ voyages realities. It deals with various categories of people on the move (economic migrants, environmental refugees, forced displaced people, asylum seekers, etc.) and their ongoing confrontation with danger and death. Deadly Voyages contributes strongly to a renewal of perspectives around life and death, engendered by migrant journeys, constantly marked by perils and sufferings.
Elieth Eyebiyi, LASDEL Benin & Deutsches Historisches Institut Paris

The authors of Deadly Voyages asked a very important question, who “deserves” to receive protection while migrating?
