Sanctuary cities and urban struggles

Rescaling migration, citizenship, and rights

First Edition

Edited by Jonathan Darling and Harald Bauder

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides the first international analysis of sanctuary cities, exploring the legal, social, cultural, and political dimensions of sanctuary policies and practices.
  • Makes a timely contribution to discussions of citizenship, migration and rights, through exploring how cities are increasingly at the forefront of negotiating these contested issues.
  • Develops a critical approach to studies of migration, refuge and border enforcement, through looking beyond the nation-state to forms of governance and contestation at the urban scale.
  • Makes a wide-ranging case for the importance of cities and urban politics in understanding contemporary migration.
