From the Publisher
"Laura González-Murphy dares to explore how influential civil society can be on migration policy formulation in the Mexican case, precisely at a time when sharp changes in migration law and policy are taking place in a country which is a bookmark for migration policymakers in America. The author also engages in a comparison with civil society in Italy and Spain, in order to better assess if civil society in Mexico is really having concrete, measurable, and visible influence on the migration policy domain."
—Juan Carlos Calleros Alarcón, Unit of Migration Policy, Center of Migration Studies, Interior Department, Mexico
"González-Murphy provides an important complement to scholarship that looks at Mexico primarily as a source country of emigrants. Meticulously researched, this book is the first serious study of the role of civil society in the formation of Mexico's immigration policies as a destination country. As such, it is a welcome addition to the literature that should be of interest to both academics and policymakers."
—Susan Martin, Georgetown University
"González-Murphy reverses our gaze to Mexico as a major immigrant receiving state. Retrieving original voices from civil society and state actors, she exposes us to the micro-negotiations that determine immigration policy. She should be applauded for deploying local data and interviews to make visible civil society’s critical role in Mexican immigration policy."
