This Handbook explores the multifaceted linkages between two of the most important socioeconomic phenomena of our time: globalisation and migration. Both are on the rise, increasing in size and scope worldwide, and this Handbook offers the necessary background knowledge and tools to understand how population flows shape, and are shaped by, economic and cultural globalisation.

Through central themes which correspond to the four domains of human life – politics, economics (separated into trade and development, and the global division of labour), culture and family life – expert authors from five continents highlight the interdependence between migration and globalisation, and explore the mutual impact of economic, social and political globalisation on international population flows. They also investigate how migrants themselves become agents of the globalisation process.

With accessible language that guides the reader easily through complex issues, this Handbook makes an ideal resource for undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and academics interested in migration, ethnicity, development, international relations and international economics.
‘This is a truly global book about migration and globalisation. Covering forced and voluntary migration, internal and international movements, and Asia, Latin America, and Africa, this comprehensive reference will certainly become a go-to book for scholars, lawyers, and policymakers alike.’
– Peggy Levitt, author of Artifacts and Allegiances: How Museums Put the Nation and the World on Display

‘Appropriate for a book with this title, Anna Triandafyllidou has assembled a global consortium of authors to provide a rich and exhaustive compendium of insightful essays on migration as an increasingly globalised yet diversified phenomenon. The Handbook deserves to become a key reference tool for students, scholars and policy-makers dealing with migration in its many forms. Above all, the book demonstrates migration's close and complex economic, political and cultural interconnections with globalisation.’
– Russell King, University of Sussex and Malmö University, Sweden

‘The Handbook of Migration and Globalisation offers an impressive overview of the global state of migration. With an interdisciplinary group of contributors spanning a wide geography, its in-depth examinations of migration offer diverse perspectives on migrant governance, economic activities and cultural transformations. The collection’s most significant contribution is its multiscalar perspective on the governance and economies of migration as the chapters cover the global, regional, national, local and individual operations of migration and globalisation. This is an essential resource and necessary Handbook for anyone interested in the current state of migration across the globe.’
– Rhacel Salazar Parreñas, University of Southern California, US and Author of Servants of Globalization: Migration and Domestic Work

‘Anna Triandafyllidou is at the forefront of migration studies in relation to Europe and here brings together a cast of experts covering these issues across the globe. This Handbook is not just a resource for researchers on particular regions but connects disparate regional studies into a global overview and nurtures a global research community.’
