  7. Migration and Global Governance

    Migration and Global Governance

    Edited by Alan Gamlen, Katharine Marsh
    In this noteworthy collection, the editors present the key articles published over the past twenty years which illustrate three related ‘modes’ of governing migration: a national mode, an international mode and a transnational mode. In recent years a new phase of migration policy-making has emerged: nation states, international organizations and NGOs have increasingly directed their efforts towards cooperative management of transnational flows and networks. With an original introduction by the editors, this ground-breaking volume explores the rise of this distinctive new transnational approach in relation to other pre-existing and emerging modes of regulating global migration.

  9. Immigration and the Financial Crisis

    Immigration and the Financial Crisis

    Edited by John Higley, John Nieuwenhuysen, Stine Neerup
    Structural needs for immigrant labour in health care, restaurant, tourism, agricultural and other economic sectors, together with harsher economic circumstances in most sending countries, almost certainly ensure the continuation of large-scale immigration to the US and Australia. But in harder times, especially in the US, sustaining this immigration while managing immigrants’ economic and social integration are daunting tasks. This illuminating book analyses how well, and in what ways, the US and Australia will meet these challenges. Learn More

  10. International Migration and Economic Integration

    International Migration and Economic Integration

    Roger White, Bedassa Tadesse
    This essential volume examines the influence of immigrants on the process of international economic integration – specifically, their influences on bilateral and multilateral trade flows. It extends beyond the identification and explanation of the immigrant–trade link and offers a more expansive treatment of the subject matter, making it the most comprehensive volume of its kind. The authors present abundant evidence that confirms the positive influences of immigrants on trade between their home and host countries; however the immigrant–trade link may not be universal. The operability of the link is found to depend on a variety of factors related to immigrants’ home countries, their host countries, the types of goods and services being traded and the anthropogenic characteristics of the immigrants themselves.

  12. Trafficking and Human Rights

    Trafficking and Human Rights

    Edited by Leslie Holmes
    Human trafficking is widely considered to be the fastest growing branch of trafficking. It has moved rapidly up the agenda of states and international organisations since the early-1990s, not only because of this growth, but also as its implications for security and human rights have become clearer. This fascinating study by European and Australian specialists provides original research findings on human trafficking, with particular reference to Europe, South-East Asia and Australia. A major focus is on how many states and organisations act in ways that undermine trafficking victims’ rights. Learn More

  20. Pioneers of European Integration

    Pioneers of European Integration

    Edited by Ettore Recchi, Adrian Favell
    The free movement of EU citizens is the most visible sociological consequence of the remarkable process of European integration that has transformed the continent since the Second World War. Pioneers of European Integration offers the first systematic analysis of the small but symbolically potent number of Europeans who have chosen to live and work as foreigners in another member state of the EU. Based on an original survey of 5000 people moving to and from the EU’s five largest countries, the book documents the demographic profile, migration choices, cultural adaptation, social mobility, political participation and media use of these pioneers of a transnational Europe, as well as opening a window to the new waves of intra-EU East–West migrations.
