Over time, economic, religious, political or demographic crises, as well as wars and conflicts have resulted in massive displacements of people, and have triggered major diasporic movements. Though conflicts and wars undoubtedly elucidate many migration crises, the diverse nature of historical mass exoduses accounts for the multiplicity of explanations of the phenomenon. A Handbook of Migration Crises is an edited volume focusing on historical and ongoing migration crises, which purpose is to provide answers and definitions to major worldwide critical migration situations. Combining diverse theoretical and epistemological approaches (psychology, politics, history, anthropology…), it aims at offering a comprehensive definition of migration crises.
