Über dieses Buch

This book critically examines and theorizes the process of how return migrants reintegrate into their countries of origin. The result is a new methodology for understanding the experiences of return migrants, or their 'reintegration strategies'. This approach demonstrates that reintegration strategies differ by type of return migrant, leading to variations in how far they are able to contribute to the development of their nation states. The author uses female return migration to Ethiopia as a case study, focusing on the impact of gender on reintegration strategies to analyse the connection between return migration and social change. This book will appeal to scholars of migration and refugee studies, as well as a wider audience of sociologists, anthropologists, demographers and policy makers.

Stimmen zum Buch

“This book by Katie Kuschminder stakes several claims to originality: it addresses the neglected topic of the reintegration of returning migrants; it does so through a gender lens, focusing on three returnee groups (students, domestic workers and professionals); and it takes as its empirical setting a country, Ethiopia, on which there is only a limited migration literature. On a broader canvas, the book engages with important areas of cross-disciplinary study – refugee and migration studies, development studies, gender studies – which are successfully integrated at both theoretical and empirical levels.” (Professor Russell King, School of Global Studies, University of Sussex)

“The work Reintegration Strategies offers a valuable contribution to scholars and practitioners alike. Scholars will realise the conceptual freshness introduced by Katie Kuschminder in her desire to demonstrate that “reintegration is not only an insertion back into the culture and life of the country of origin, it is a process” through which returnees develop their own agency, value systems, self-identification and projects. Practitioners will certainly appreciate this original work which critically advances knowledge about migrants’ return and reintegration and illuminates current policy debates.” (Jean-Pierre Cassarino, research fellow at the Institut de Recherche sur le Maghreb Contemporain (IRMC, Tunis), former Professor at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute, Florence)

“While books on international migration from African countries are growing apace, relatively few consider return migration and even fewer focus on the return of female migrants. Katie Kuschminder, in a unique study of Ethiopia, examines the various strategies adopted by women of different skill levels that help them to reintegrate into the society and economy of their home nation. This study provides important insights and critical interpretations of gender, return and reintegration that have broader policy implications for the migration and development debate.” (Ronald Skeldon, Emeritus Professor, University of Sussex and Professor of Human Geography, Maastricht University)

“The return and reintegration of migrants are at the same time understudied and of growing international significance. Using unique empirical data, this book explores the return process with conceptual rigour and policy relevance. It ranks amongst the most innovative studies on migration in recent years.” (Khalid Koser, MBE,  Executive Director, Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund)
