Summary
This book documents the current global refugee crisis and examines the interrelated factors of immigration enforcement, international human rights law, political violence, and refugee protection. The questionable cost-to-benefit ratio and long-term benefit of the United States' military involvement in Iraq has been a subject of widespread scrutiny debate. But much less attention has been paid to the massive human migration due to the invasion of Iraq, which has caused the displacement of roughly four million individuals.'
