Handbook of Migration and Globalisation

Handbooks on Globalisation series

Edited by Anna Triandafyllidou, Canada Excellence Chair in Migration and Integration, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada

This Handbook explores the multifaceted linkages between two of the most important socioeconomic phenomena of our time: globalisation and migration. Both are on the rise, increasing in size and scope worldwide, and this Handbook offers the necessary background knowledge and tools to understand how population flows shape, and are shaped by, economic and cultural globalisation.

‘This is a truly global book about migration and globalisation. Covering forced and voluntary migration, internal and international movements, and Asia, Latin America, and Africa, this comprehensive reference will certainly become a go-to book for scholars, lawyers, and policymakers alike.’
– Peggy Levitt, author of Artifacts and Allegiances: How Museums Put the Nation and the World on Display

‘Appropriate for a book with this title, Anna Triandafyllidou has assembled a global consortium of authors to provide a rich and exhaustive compendium of insightful essays on migration as an increasingly globalised yet diversified phenomenon. The Handbook deserves to become a key reference tool for students, scholars and policymakers dealing with migration in its many forms. Above all, the book demonstrates migration's close and complex economic, political and cultural interconnections with globalisation.’
– Russell King, University of Sussex and Malmö University, Sweden

‘The Handbook of Migration and Globalisation offers an impressive overview of the global state of migration. With an interdisciplinary group of contributors spanning a wide geography, its in-depth examinations of migration offer diverse perspectives on migrant governance, economic activities and cultural transformations. The collection’s most significant contribution is its multiscalar perspective on the governance and economies of migration as the chapters cover the global, regional, national, local and individual operations of migration and globalisation. This is an essential resource and necessary Handbook for anyone interested in the current state of migration across the globe.’
– Rhacel Salazar Parreñas, University of Southern California, US and Author of Servants of Globalization: Migration and Domestic Work

‘Anna Triandafyllidou is at the forefront of migration studies in relation to Europe and here brings together a cast of experts covering these issues across the globe. This Handbook is not just a resource for researchers on particular regions but connects disparate regional studies into a global overview and nurtures a global research community.’
