This insightful Research Handbook presents a comprehensive overview of the core issues concerning the integration of migration and employment studies, highlighting the interdisciplinary and global perspectives required to understand the complexity of labour migration.

Guglielmo Meardi enhances often fragmented migration and employment research by bringing together a range of multidisciplinary authors including demographers, geographers, economists, sociologists, political scientists and labour lawyers across the Global South and North. Contributing authors explore labour market trends, discuss regional and sectoral perspectives, and analyse the most important actors, politics and regulations in the field of migration and employment. Chapters cover key issues such as supply and demand, diversity management, trade unions and migrant workers in the care sector.

Providing statistical analysis, literature reviews, conceptual theory and practical policy, this book is a vital resource for students, researchers and academics specialising in migration, labour studies, development studies, politics and public and social policy, and sociology. It is also beneficial to policymakers and think tank professionals focusing on the international mobility of workers.
Critical Acclaim
‘Migration is dramatically transforming our world economically, socially and politically. This long-overdue volume, admirably interdisciplinary and global in scope, distinguishes itself as the authoritative source on how international migration and employment interact.’
– Chris Tilly, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, US
