Teaching migration studies: a new series

Alexandra Delano, Alan John Gamlen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOther


What defines the field of migration studies? This question is asked and answered daily by researchers and practitioners across a dozen or so academic journals with migration in the title, and hundreds of research units dedicated to the topic that have proliferated globally over the past 30 years. But some of the most influential definitions of this research field now also emanate from educators of the topic in the increasingly numerous university graduate programs on migration studies forming around the world. Most of these have emerged over the past decade, and because so many of our authors are involved in setting up and running them, few have had the time to step back and reflect together on the way they are collectively shaping the field.
