Announcements: Cambridge Asylum and Migration Studies; CfS UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence

Written by

1. Cambridge Asylum and Migration Studies. Cambridge University Press has launched a new book series: Cambridge Asylum and Migration Studies. The series is now accepting book proposals. At no time in modern history have so many people been on the move as at present. Migration facilitates critical social, economic, and humanitarian linkages. But it may also challenge prevailing notions of bounded political communities, of security, and of international law. The political and legal systems that regulate the transborder movement of persons were largely devised in the mid-twentieth century, and are showing the strains. New challenges have arisen for policymakers, advocates, and decision-makers that require the adaptation and evolution of traditional models to meet emerging imperatives.  This new series aims to be a forum for innovative writing on all aspects of the transitional movement of people. It publishes single or coauthored works that may be legal, political, or cross-disciplinary in nature. The series is edited by a world leader in international refugee law, Professor James Hathaway, University of Michigan. He is supported by an Editorial Advisory Board comprising Alexander Betts, University of Oxford, Vincent Chetail, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen, Raoul Wallenberg Institution of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, Audrey Macklin, University of Toronto, and Saskia Sassen, Colombia University. Potential authors should contact Finola O’Sullivan at Cambridge University Press, the series editor, or any member of the Editorial Advisory Board.
