Reginald Appleyard occupies an eminent position in the field of international migration and development studies. This enlightening volume of essays, in his honour, brings together contributions from a distinguished group of scholars who have known him for many years and hold him in high esteem. Combining judgements and expertise from all fields of the social sciences, this unique book provides a truly inter-disciplinary analysis of one of the most significant emerging problems of the 21st Century.

The authors examine different aspects of migration from an international perspective, evaluating the nature and significance of change in the movement of people, and attempting to predict emerging trends in the volume, direction and composition of global migration. The book questions the causes of illegal and refugee migration, the politics of selection and restriction, and the changing determinants of return migration. In particular, the authors emphasise that original approaches and theories are required to study and understand the rapidly changing trends in international migration associated with new technology and globalisation.

By addressing issues which are likely to be of growing significance during the 21st century, this thought-provoking book will be of immense value to students, scholars and researchers in the social sciences, and especially the theory and policy of international migration.
Critical Acclaim
‘This volume is a fitting tribute to one of Australia’s most celebrated migration scholars.’
– Russell King, International Journal of Popular Geography

‘International Migration into the 21st Century is most scholarly and original in its contribution to migration and refugee studies.’
– Anthony H. Richmond, Journal of Refugee Studies

‘. . . there is no doubt that the volume will provide interesting reading. The essays highlight not only the increasing complexity of international migration in the twenty-first century but also society’s need to respond innovatively and to courageously challenge established social, economic, and political norms. It is the focus on future developments in international migration that makes the volume a valuable contribution to the migration literature. It is also an excellent focus for a volume to honour Reginald Appleyard, who dedicated his entire academic life to our understanding of international migration.’
– Brigitte Waldorf, The Professional Geographer

‘This volume of papers is among the best to appear in the prolific literature on international migration published during the last two decades. It should be of value both to the migration specialist and to readers interested in this increasingly critical area of population research.’
– Michael P. Todaro, Population and Development Review

‘The eminent scholars within this volume take stock of, and look forward to, core issues in the field of migration studies. In my view this is an excellent book.’
– Jeroen Doomernik, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
