This thoroughly revised and updated Handbook brings together an international range of contributors to highlight the deep interdependence between migration and globalisation and explore the impact of economic, social and political globalisation on international population flows. It provides an interdisciplinary perspective on a discussion that has been intensifying and diversifying over the past 25 years.

Chapters provide an overview of important research questions, relevant literature, main approaches and findings in the field, and set out future challenges facing the international community. Particular focus is paid to the global economy, dynamics of interregional and internal migration, links between global migration and climate change and the cultural ramifications of migration. In this revised second edition chapters consider the interlinking issues of migration and health, climate change and human mobility, and the use of digital technologies in the governance of migration and asylum systems.

Exploring the multifaceted linkages between two of the most important socio-economic phenomena of our time, this Handbook will prove an ideal resource for researchers and journalists focused on international relations and migration. It will also be useful for scholars and students of social and public policy, sociology, political science, geography, migration development and legal theory.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Handbook of Migration and Globalisation provides a thorough, engaging, and expansive overview of the complex reverberations of the intersections of migration and globalization. It is a fantastic resource for scholars of migration across disciplines and geographies and I recommend it highly.’
– Cecilia Menjívar, University of California, Los Angeles, US

‘This Handbook is a fundamental reading to understand the linkages and mutual interdependence between migration and globalization, across several disciplines and several fields of human activity, ranging from politics to economics, culture and family. This book cannot be lacking in the library of every scholar researching on these issues.’
– Maurizio Ambrosini, University of Milan, Italy

‘The Handbook of Migration and Globalisation is both an essential starting point for anyone seriously interested in the contemporary dynamics of migration, and a compendium of state-of-the-art knowledge that will appeal to experts in the field. The added emphasis in the new edition on the relationship between migration and climate change, and migration and technology, adds significant value to this impressive scholarly resource.’
– Daniel Hiebert, University of British Columbia, Canada
