This Handbook provides a framework for analysing migrant diversity, utilising case studies that illustrate the social dynamics and consequences of such diversity for both migrants and host societies. By engaging with a wide range of literature and theoretical perspectives related to race and ethnicity, diasporas, gender, superdiversity, and intersectionality, it examines how such diversities can result in social processes of inclusion, exclusion, and hierarchical inequalities.

This Handbook provides a framework for analysing migrant diversity, utilising case studies that illustrate the social dynamics and consequences of such diversity for both migrants and host societies. By engaging with a wide range of literature and theoretical perspectives related to race and ethnicity, diasporas, gender, superdiversity, and intersectionality, it examines how such diversities can result in social processes of inclusion, exclusion, and hierarchical inequalities.

In this Handbook, an interdisciplinary range of scholars analyse the diversity among various groups of labor and refugee migrants, marriage and ethnic return migrants, and diasporas in various continents, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East . In addition to ethnic diversity, chapter authors discuss migrant differences based on gender and sexuality, social class, generation, and legality and how they impact host societies and their treatment of migrant groups.

Comprehensive and thought-provoking, this Handbook is a vital read for students and scholars in migration studies, anthropology, sociology, and geography. Its conceptual framework about migration and diversity will also appeal to those studying race and ethnicity, diasporas, and gender.
Critical Acclaim
‘Across the globe, societies are becoming vastly more diverse because people are moving across nation-state borders. Collectively, the chapters in this book provide a rich portrait of how migration shapes between- and within-group diversity in a range of global contexts. This is the book we''ve been waiting for to help us understand how the diversity that results from migration shapes the human experience.’
– Tomás R. Jiménez, Stanford University, US

‘Edited by an internationally well-known scholar on migration and ethnicity, the contributions to the Handbook brilliantly unpack the intersectional nuances contained within the totalising concept of migration. Combined with excellent overview chapters by the editor, the individual chapters present diverse and original case-studies on migration, ethnicity and diversity spanning the globe.’
– Russell King, University of Sussex, UK
