With contributions from leading scholars in Southern Europe, this compelling book demonstrates the plurality of migratory circumstances and analyses the significance of the Mediterranean migration model.

Highlighting the challenges of studying the variability and heterogeneity of migratory patterns in the Mediterranean, this insightful book provides a comprehensive examination of the spatial-temporal scales and sedimentation of different migratory configurations. Chapters explore the continuities between colonial past, postcolonialism and migration; the integration and exploitation in the labour market; and the impact of political discourses on migrants and non-migrants.

Contributors analyse the links between race and gender relations, colonialism, and migration policies across countries including Greece, Italy, Lebanon, the Maghreb region, and Spain.

Proposing that the ‘principle of coexistence’ can be an interpretive tool for studying migration in the Mediterranean, this book will be essential for students and researchers in comparative social policy, cultural sociology, development studies, history and migration studies. It will also be beneficial for policymakers and practitioners in national and international political bodies and agencies.
Critical Acclaim
‘An indispensable contribution to comparative immigration studies, this book brings together an impressive group of country specialists on southern European migration, working in a broad range of disciplines. While deeply sensitive to historical context, the contributors offer original insights into ongoing policy issues like the tension between child/elder-care needs of native-born families and restrictive immigration measures. This book is a model of cross-national scholarship that breaks new theoretical ground.’
– Wayne A. Cornelius, University of California - San Diego, US

‘With a multidisciplinary and outward looking (not Eurocentric) perspective, this book offers one of the most comprehensive surveys of research on migration in the Mediterranean area. The contributions cover countries on the European side and those on the opposite side of the Mediterranean. They examine the policies adopted, the motivations and the aims of the multiple parties involved.’
– Paola Corti, University of Turin, Italy
