This book provides a toolkit for tackling the fundamental questions and challenges in planning and conducting migration research. It illustrates not only how to develop rigorous methodological procedures, but also how to effectively disseminate research findings to both academics and practitioners.

Analysing diverse disciplinary perspectives from across the field of migration studies, this book identifies valuable practical approaches to studying human mobility. Chapters cover key features of migration research including contested concepts, mixed-methods approaches, archival data collection and intersectional, ethical research design. Contributing authors show that migration issues are intertwined with complex power dynamics and increasing inequalities that define contemporary societies. They critically examine cutting-edge issues in the field, from the use of social media and public opinion data to the design of indices and indicators.

How to Do Migration Research is a vital resource for human mobility researchers seeking to refine their analytical skills and learn impactful publishing strategies. Highlighting the multidisciplinary nature of the field, it is also an excellent guide for students and scholars of sociology, anthropology, geography and political science seeking a gateway into migration research.
