Aim and rationale
This is a new monograph series showcasing ground-breaking research that looks at the nexus between migration, citizenship and social change. The EU’s struggle to offer an answer to the arrival of a million forced migrants over a relatively short period of time has ignited the interests of researchers from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds. But the focus on Europe has obscured the global nature of refugee crises and the extent to which multiple forms of cross-border mobility, both within Europe and internationally, persists on a far larger scale. The series aims to offer a platform for new and innovative research on international migration and forced displacement. The series will include research-based monographs and occasionally edited collections, informed by a range of qualitative and quantitative research methods. It will be open to in-depth ethnographic/qualitative case studies, international comparative analyses, and everything in between. We welcome contributions that address drivers and dynamics of migration, exile, transnationalism and social change at different scales, and which pay attention to different intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender and age, and other key identity markers. The series aims to open up new interdisciplinary terrain and to develop new scholarship in migration and refugee studies that is theoretically innovative, empirically robust, methodologically rigorous and policy relevant.
