New Book display recommendation: The International Law of Migrant Smuggling

Each week recent purchases are placed on the new book displays. You can subscribe to the New Library Books email or view the New Books list online.

A title of interest: The International Law of Migrant Smuggling
by Anne T.Gallagher and Fiona David 

Law, social science, politics and humanities students might find this of interest with much contemporary media and political discussion devoted to immigration, asylum and people smuggling in Australia.

An extract from the publisher website states

"Whether forced into relocation by fear of persecution, civil war, or humanitarian crisis, or pulled toward the prospect of better economic opportunities, more people are on the move than ever before. Opportunities for lawful entry into preferred destinations are decreasing rapidly, creating demand that is increasingly being met by migrant smugglers. This companion volume to the award-winning The International Law of Human Trafficking, presents the first-ever comprehensive, in-depth analysis into the subject."
