The SAGE Handbook of International Migration provides an authoritative and informed analysis of key issues in international migration, including its crucial significance far beyond the more traditional questions of immigrant settlement and incorporation in particular countries. Bringing together chapters contributed by an international cast of leading voices in the field, the Handbook is arranged around four key thematic parts:
- Part 1: Disciplinary Perspectives on Migration
- Part 2: Historical and Contemporary Flows of Migrants
- Part 3: Theory, Policy and the Factors Affecting Incorporation
- Part 4: National and Global Policy Challenges in Migration
The last three decades have seen the rapid increase and diversification in the types of international migration, and this Handbook has been created to meet the need among academics and researchers across the social sciences, policy makers and commentators for a definitive publication which provides a range of perspectives and insights into key themes and debates in the field.
An exciting and rich treasure trove of articles by many leading migration scholars, providing extraordinarily broad coverage of topics on theory and policy within a truly multidisciplinary and international framework. The Handbook will be a valuable resource for students and scholars alike.
Scholars, students, and policy makers will discover a comprehensive overview of research and theories on international migration in this excellent collection of essays edited by Christine Inglis, Wei Li and Binod Khadria. A distinctive contribution of this publication is its multidisciplinary approach that surveys the state of knowledge on the forces that drive international movements and also on what happens to migrants in their destinations. The volume includes chapters on historical and contemporary migration covering almost every world region, written by a diverse range of scholars and researchers from the East and South as well as from the West and North. It will be an essential reference for many years to come.
This handbook of International Migration outlines in 42 chapters the state-of-the-art of migration studies in the widest sense, including settlement processes of migrants and policies that try to “manage” these processes. Its scope is global and its focus is on recent movements across borders. The line-up of authors is impressive: some 50 experts, representing all relevant disciplines are chosen to write on their specific topics. It is this combination of the broad delineation of the field of migration and settlement, the global coverage of these topics and the diversity of authors that makes it a recommendable Handbook.
The SAGE Handbook of International Migration is an exceptional addition to the growing list of references on one of the mega-trends of our times. The various handbooks, including this one, have different offerings: some are references on migration in general, others are specific to international migration, and some focus on particular aspects (e.g., migration data, or migration and health, and economics of international migration, among others). The SAGE Handbook is a rich volume covering four themes: interdisciplinary perspectives of migration; historical and contemporary flows of migrants; theory, policy and the factors affecting incorporation; and national and global policy challenges in migration. The contributions of the different disciplines to migration studies, the attention to both historical and contemporary flows, the comprehensive geographical scope, and the multi-level analyses spanning from the local to the global make for an insightful and exhaustive compilation of essays on our world in motion.
