Description

This textbook describes and explains the complex reality of contemporary internal and international migrations in East and Southeast Asia. Taking an interdisciplinary approach; Anthony J. Fielding combines theoretical debate and detailed empirical analysis to provide students with an understanding of the causes and consequences of the many types of contemporary migration flows in the region.

Key features of Asian Migrations:

  • Comprehensive coverage of all forms of migration including labour migration, student migration, displacement and human trafficking
  • Pedagogical features such as chapter summaries, boxed case studies and key concepts and a glossary
  • More than 50 maps and diagrams
  • Equal attention devoted to broad structures (e.g. political economy) and individual agency (e.g. migration behaviours)
  • Emphasis on the conceptual and empirical connections between internal and international migrations
  • Exploration of the policy implications of the trends and processes discussed

Written by an experienced scholar and teacher of migration studies, this is an essential text for courses on Asian migrations and mobility and important reading for courses on international migration and Asian societies more generally.
