Drawing on multi-sited fieldwork and employing a range of case-studies across the Middle East and North Africa, Tsourapas identifies how the management of cross-border mobility in the Middle East is not primarily dictated by legal, moral, or human rights considerations but driven by state actors' key concern - political power.

'In recent years, the migratory patterns of the Middle East and North Africa have become much more multi-faceted and complex due to expanding globalisation, emerging wars and conflicts, changing labour markets, and developing transnational networks and diasporas. Within this context, referring to the concept of migration diplomacy, Gerasimos Tsourapas's book provides us with a fascinating analytical framework and argues that the politics of migratory movements can be better understood when looked at through the lens of migration diplomacy: therefore, one must emphasise the unique significance of this book, not only for the scholars working on the MENA region, but also for a wider audience of those interested in the politics of migration globally.'

'In this outstanding contribution to scholarship on the politics of migration, Gerasimos Tsourapas shows how migration policies in the Global South are shaped by power and interests. Based on rich historical research, Migration diplomacy unveils the range of strategies used by Middle Eastern and North African states to link human mobility to broader political goals.'
