About this book

The contributions of this book examine contemporary dynamics of migration and mobility in the context of the general societal transformations that have taken place in Europe over the past few decades. The book will help readers to better understand the manifold ways in which migration trends in the region are linked to changing political-economic constellations, orders of power and inequality, and political discourses. It begins with an introduction to a number of theoretical approaches that address the nexus between migration and general societal shifts, including processes of supranationalisation, EU enlargement, postsocialist transformations and rescaling. It then provides a comprehensive overview of the political regulation of migration through border control and immigration policies. The contributions that follow detail the dynamic changes of individual migration patterns and their implications for the agency of mobile individuals. The final part challenges the reader to consider how policies and practices of migration are linked to symbolic struggles over belonging and rights, describing a wide range of expressions of such conflicts, from cosmopolitanism to racism and xenophobia. This book is aimed at researchers in various fields of the social sciences and can be used as course reading for undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate courses in the areas of international migration, transnational and European studies. It will be a beneficial resource for scholars looking for material on the most current conceptual tools for analysis of the nexus of migration and societal transformation in Europe.

Reviews

“This collection provides an impressive and insightful account that cuts across the societal, regional and international levels to show how migration both shapes and is shaped by key social transformations in Europe.” Andrew Geddes Department of Politics, University of Sheffield



 “This is a much needed handbook that ties the booming research on migration in Europe to wider issues of societal transformation. It is a truly needed contribution to our effort of disentangling complex phenomena such as European integration, globalisation, migration and mobility.”
Anna TriandafyllidouRobert Schuman Chair, European University Institute, Florence


“This anthology reveals how deep social forces beneath the headlines are reshaping migration in Europe. As policymakers, migrants, and natives attempt to control these transformations, they generate further changes that reverberate across the continent.”  David Scott FitzGeraldCo-Director, Center for Comparative Immigration Studies, University of California, San Diego
