About this product
- DescriptionMigration ecomics is a dynamic, fast-growing research area with significant and rising policy relevance. While its scope is continually extending, there is authoritative treatment of its various branches in one volume. Written by 44 leading experts in the field, this carefully commissioned and refereed Handbook brings together 28 state-of-the-art chapters on migration research and related issues. Well-written and highly accessible, each chapter comprises a critical assessment of the status quo and presents challenges to the traditional ecomics of migration by addressing taboo issues. Topics explored include: child labor migrants; immigrant educational mismatch; ethnic hiring; immigrants, wages and obesity; ethnic identities and the nation-state; natural disasters and migration; immigration-religiosity intersections; immigration and crime; immigrants' time use; happiness and migration; diaspora resources and policies; and the evaluation of immigration policies. Forging new foundations in the field of migration and providing areas for future research, this Handbook will prove a seminal reference for academics and students with an interest in international and labor ecomics, and in regional studies. Social psychologists and behavioral scientists, as well as practitioners in political, cultural, social, demographic, environmental and healthcare arenas, will find the ethnic identities coverage and analysis of methods for studying ethnic identities an invaluable reference tool.
