In Migration in a Globalised Word, Cédric Audebert and Mohamed Kamel Dorai assemble a number of essays from leading economists, sociologists, and political scientists that examine international migration in light of the growing effects of globalization. Among the topics discussed are migration and social cohesion, transnationalization and the transnational approach, the migration-development nexus, and the blurring categories of refugees and asylum seekers.

Review Quotes
Rosita Fibbi, University of Neuchâtel

“From social cohesion and development to transnationalism and forced migration, this book spans many issues through well-structured dialogues between established scholars of the English- and French-speaking worlds. An achievement deserving acknowledgment.”

Lorenzo Cachón, Complutense University of Madrid

“A major advantage of this book is the different perspectives it offers on various subjects, themes and research approaches that, in my opinion, are very useful for academics and students in advanced courses.”

Felicitas Hillmann, Bremen University

“This book provides valuable insight into current migration research by concentrating on crucial topics such as social cohesion, transnationalisation, migration and development and forced migration. It analyses migration as an entanglement of social and spatial processes.”
