The International Encyclopaedia of Laws: Migration Law deals with
international and national rules on immigration and right of residence of
non-nationals. It contains national monographs on the migration law applicable
in each country. This information is completed by monographs on the legal
instruments on migration law adopted by supranational, international and
regional organisations. The national monographs focus on the legal and
administrative conditions for persons not having the citizenship of a State to
enter this State, to stay on its territory for a short period or to obtain the
right of residence for a longer period. Special attention will be paid to the
status of specific categories of persons, such as students, researchers,
temporary workers and asylum seekers, as well as to the position of the member
of the family of immigrants. The monographs also contain practical information
on the administrative procedures to be followed on order to obtain the right
to enter and to reside in a State. They also deal with sanctions against
persons not respecting these rules, including the possibility of expulsion.
Furthermore, legal remedies and procedural guarantees are analysed. Finally,
the national monographs describe rules on access to the labour market and to
self-employed activities for non-nationals. The monographs on supranational
(EC), international (UN; ILO) and regional (Council of Europe; other regional
agreements) legislation concentrate on the specific instruments adopted by the
relevant organisations with a direct or indirect impact on the migration law
of the Member States. The International Encyclopaedia for Migration Law will
be the only comprehensive and concise source of information on migration law
in a great number of countries. It is addressed to major law firms and to
immigration specialists both in public and private organisations (national
immigration offices; human resources specialists in companies and
organisations; non-governmental organisations).
