About this book

This book examines the social and political dimensions of migration from a perspective between the realms of demography and politics. It approaches the issue of migration by highlighting the important power relations that have previously been neglected in studies in the area. The book starts by investigating Indonesian migration to provide an understanding of internal migration. It then looks beyond its national borders for a wider understanding of Asia, and showcases several case studies both in Indonesia and beyond to illustrate the intricate politics of migration. Further, it considers the politics of migration from the sending country perspective and unravels the link between migration and security. The book provides reviews of the wider literature relating to population mobility and distribution, and shows readers how to adopt a new perspective in the study of movement of people –an issue that is becoming increasingly important as movement of people unfolds globally in terms of both volume and direction. This book is a valuable resource for students, academics and researchers in the area of demography and social-politics, especially those interested in migration and refugees. It also offers insights for those interested in understanding decentralization in greater depth.
