    Migration and Religion

    Edited by James A. Beckford
    The complex and changing relations between religion and migration are central to many urgent questions about diversity, inequality and pluralism.

There is particular emphasis on how religions inspire, manage and benefit from migration as well as how the experience of migration affects religious beliefs, identities and practices.

  6. Migration and Development

    Migration and Development

    Edited by Oliver Bakewell

The volume studies the impacts of levels of development on both internal and international migration and the impacts of migration on economic and social change in both origin and destination areas. Further topics covered include the influence of transnationalism and diasporas. It presents the reasons for the rise of the migration–development nexus and concludes by offering some critical perspectives on it. Learn More

  9. 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.

    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. Social scientists and political analysts are becoming more and more aware of the importance of long-maintained or newly embellished links between post-migration communities and the societies from which they originate. Closely tied to this field is a renewed interest in ‘diasporas’ or globally dispersed groups whose collective experiences often draw on deep historical roots in more than one place. Learn More

  13. 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.
