"This book is a brilliant and valuable contribution to international norm and refugee literature. It should most certainly be closely studied not only by humanitarian practitioners, but by all students of international relations and global governance."―Catherine Weaver, European Political Science (2015)
"Overall, due to its inter-disciplinarity, the author's clear writing style, and a balancedassessment of competing and relevant perspectives, Survival Migration: FailedGovernance and the Crisis of Displacement is convincing as well as very accessible to adiverse readership."―Hannah Baumeister, International Journal of Refugee Law (December 2015)
"Survival Migration is a study of how the international community treats some of its most vulnerable: persons fleeing for their lives from Somalia, Zimbabwe, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is a passionate book disciplined by carefully collected evidence. It is also a powerful argument that global regimes, including the protection of desperate migrants, are implemented or not according to the preferences of national governments. There are important lessons here for the study of global governance and the protection of persons most in need."―Michael Doyle, Harold Brown Professor of International Affairs, Law and Political Science, Columbia University
"In this well-written book, Alexander Betts makes a convincing argument about the pressures on people who flee serious human rights deprivations but do not have official refugee status. Survival Migration has a strong conceptual framework that is amply illustrated with interesting case studies. Its compelling empirical evidence will be valuable to researchers in a number of fields."―Khalid Koser, Deputy Director and Academic Dean, Geneva Centre for Security Policy
"In Survival Migration, Alexander Betts combines a strong international relations perspective with a detailed bottom-up approach to arrive at well-supported conclusions and appropriate recommendations. His well-researched and deftly analyzed case studies make for compelling reading."―Susan F. Martin, Donald G. Herzberg Professor of International Migration, Georgetown University
"Survival Migration is a very thoughtful and thought-provoking book providing critical guidance on how to enhance a refugee regime under attack. Alexander Betts makes a convincing case for prioritizing a focus on better implementation and stronger domestic institutions rather than new international law to address new causes of flight."―Walter Kaelin, Former UN Secretary-General's Special Representative on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons
