Graziano Battistella, Editor


This volume examines key aspects of the migration process that are particularly relevant in the Asian context. It looks into established concepts and theoretical propositions that have been applied in other regions, particularly in the West, and explore their validity and relevance in understanding the realities of migration in Asia.

Global and Asian Perspectives on International Migration features the perspectives of scholars from Asia and other parts of the world, as well as diverse backgrounds. The book starts with a review of the migration realities in Asia and their theoretical implications. The rest of the book presents the dialogue and exchange of the invited scholars on the following themes: circular and temporary migration; the management of cultural diversity; the gender perspective on migration in North America, Europe and Asia; return migration; migration governance in the ASEAN economic community; and the determinants of migration, with a special focus on migration transition in Asia. The dialogic approach of the book will serve as a valuable reference to policy makers, researchers and academics, civil society organizations, international organizations and the private sector who are interested in the many facets and nuances of international migration.
