  3. 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.

  5. Moving People and Knowledge

    Moving People and Knowledge

    Louise Ackers, Bryony Gill
    Moving People and Knowledge provides a fresh examination of the processes of highly skilled science migration. Focusing on intra-European mobility and, in particular, on the new dynamics of East–West migration, the authors investigate the movement of Polish and Bulgarian researchers to and from the UK and Germany. Key questions include: who is moving, how long for, and why? In addressing the motivations and experiences of mobile scientists and their families, insights into professional and personal motivations are provided, demonstrating how relationships, networks and infrastructures shape decision-making. This book provides a useful perspective on the implications of increasing researcher mobility – for both sending and receiving regions and the individuals concerned – which is necessary for the construction of future policies on sustainable scientific development.

    Contemporary Minority Migration, Education and Ethnicity in China

    Robyn Iredale, Naren Bilik, Wang Su, Fei Guo, Caroline Hoy
    Rural–urban migration is an important aspect in the development of countries.

The gradual relaxation of these policies has resulted in greater freedom of movement for the population, the effects of which are discussed in this significant volume. Learn More

    Migration, Diasporas and Transnationalism

    Edited by Steven Vertovec, Robin Cohen
    This authoritative collection brings together the most significant papers by leading scholars in an increasingly important area of study.

  14. Migration and Social Cohesion

    Migration and Social Cohesion

    Edited by Steven Vertovec
    There is a common assumption that immigrants contribute significantly to the breakdown of social cohesion. However, researchers and policymakers find that, on the contrary, immigrants contribute much to their adopted societies economically, socially, culturally and politically. This volume includes a variety of key works which explore this relationship between migration and social cohesion. The articles by some of the foremost writers in the field cover models and frameworks of immigrant incorporation, debates in multicultural policy, immigrant and ethnic minority political participation, citizenship, entrepreneurship and language and sociocultural adaptation.

  17. Theories of Migration

    Theories of Migration

    Edited by Robin Cohen
    In Theories of Migration, Robin Cohen has brought together a substantive body of scholarship from many disciplines and schools of thought which address the failure to produce one satisfactory general theory of migration. Attempts to construct a theory of migration have been constrained by the considerable variety of migrations which have to be considered – professional and unskilled, compelled and voluntary, settler and temporary, internal and international, and finally, illegal and legal. Perspectives arising from all the major social science disciplines are represented in this volume which features over 25 articles originally published in a wide array of professional disciplines.
