This forward-looking Research Handbook showcases cutting-edge research on the relationship between international migration and digital technology. It sheds new light on the interlinkages between digitalisation and migration patterns and processes globally, capturing the latest research technologies and data sources.

Featuring international migration in all facets from the migration of tech sector specialists through to refugee displacement, leading contributors offer strategic insights into the future of migration and mobility. Covering diverse geographies and using interdisciplinary approaches, contributions provide new analysis of migration futures. A discrete chapter on digital technology and COVID-19 global pandemic offers reflections on how migration and mobility are being profoundly reshaped by the global pandemic. The practical applications and limitations of digital technology in relation to international migration are also highlighted and supported with key case studies.

Analytical yet accessible, this Research Handbook will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars in the fields of migration and digital technology, while also being of benefit to policy makers and civil society actors specialising in migration.
Critical Acclaim
‘A pioneer Handbook in a burgeoning field mapping the multifaceted interlinkages between international migration and digital technology. This edited volume fills a huge gap in the current literature, providing the state of the art and exploring future avenues to better understand the profound impact of digital transformations upon the processes, patterns and politics of migration. While offering a rich array of topics, perspectives and disciplines, this Research Handbook illuminates the complexities and controversies surrounding digital technology as a facilitator and a disruptor of international migration. The reader will find insightful analyses of many topical issues, including the use of digital technology in migration research and analysis, its role as a tool of empowerment and agency of migrants across the migration cycle, the digitalization and automation of border control and population surveillance, and the spread of disinformation in the public debate. A must-read for anyone interested in the cutting edge issues associated with migration and digital technology.’
– Vincent Chetail, Graduate Institute, Switzerland

‘This book is a must-read for everyone interested in the intersection between migration and digitalization. As the volume of data grows from expanding forms of technology, the implications for understanding migration are wide-ranging. Impressive in scope, this book offers us a lens for examining how data-driven technologies are reshaping migration in fundamental ways.’
– Katharine M. Donato, Institute for the Study of International Migration, Georgetown University, US

‘This Research Handbook is a major advance in the study of the relationship between international migration and digital technology. Not only does it powerfully synthesize an emerging and hugely important field of research, but it also establishes new agendas for future enquiry.’
– Andrew Geddes, European University Institute, Italy

‘This is a much needed Research Handbook on how the rapid evolution of digital technologies is changing international migration pathways and policies. Contributions to this volume highlight the challenges of advanced technologies for human rights violations, as well as the possibilities they open up for migrant connectivity across time and space. A must-have for students, researchers and media and policy professionals working in this field.’
– Anna Triandafyllidou, Ryerson University, Canada
