This cutting-edge book presents a unique focus on nationalism and migration, exploring the relationship between these two concepts in countries throughout the world. Combining theoretical and empirical discussions from a range of disciplinary perspectives, the book questions the rise of nationalism in the 21st century instead of simply assuming its ascendancy.

Featuring contributions from leading scholars in the field, this book not only conceptualises ethno-nationalism, but also details its effects. From Islamophobia and racism in Europe and North America, to xenophobia in China and South Africa, the book critically examines the many forms of discursive and material exclusions that exist across the globe. Rejecting a simple framework that links the supposed rise of ethno-nationalism to the limits of neoliberalism, it instead argues that nationalism and neoliberalism may in fact be combined. It also considers how this leads to discourses, policies and practices of differential inclusion and exclusion, and vice versa.

International and multidisciplinary in scope, Migration and Nationalism will be a beneficial read for academics, researchers and students in politics and public policy, geography, sociology and social policy, urban and regional studies, and development studies. It also will be of benefit to policymakers within these fields.
Critical Acclaim
‘We cannot separate immigration from nationalism. This book offers fresh insights into this understudied relationship. It helps us understand how populism, right-wing politics, and neoliberalism affect migration policies. To me it shows why the dream of free movement for all seems so distant today.’
– Harald Bauder, Toronto Metropolitan University, Canada
