Recent Work

Global Migration: The Basics

As part of The Basics Series by the publisher Routledge, Global Migration: The Basics is intended for students who are seeking an introduction to the essentials of the subject of migration in a global context. Migration is a politically contentious topic that raises debates about issues of social and cultural diversity, economic stability, globalization, terrorism and national security. This book examines the history and geography of migration, the impact of migration on politics and the economy, and the policy challenges in the settlement of migrants to their new society. Through detailed examinations of the scholarly literature, demographic patterns, and public policy debates, Global Migration: The Basics exposes readers to the underlying causes and consequences of migration.
