International Migration and Human Rights: The Global Repercussions of U.S. Policy

Samuel Martinez


In this book, a multidisciplinary group of scholars examines how the actions of the United States as a global leader are worsening pressures on people worldwide to migrate, while simultaneously degrading migrant rights. Uniting such diverse issues as market reform, drug policy, and terrorism under a common framework of human rights, the book constitutes a call for a new vision on immigration.

Keywords: United States, global leader, migrant rights, market reform, drug policy, terrorism, human rights, immigration
