Refugees are a growing element in the population movements that result from ethnic conflicts, civil wars, and environmental disasters. The economically privileged seek to protect their advantage, while the deprived fight for their share. "Global apartheid" is how Richmond describes some host countries' response to these conflicts by creating barriers designed to stem the flow of migrants and protect the power, benefits, and status of the host societies. This work examines the impact of postindustrialism, postmodernism, and globalization on international migration, racial conflict, and ethnic nationalism.
