Attempts to construct a theory of migration have been constrained by the considerable variety of migrations which have to be considered - professional and unskilled, compelled and voluntary, settler and temporary, internal and international, and finally, illegal and legal. Perspectives arising from all the major social science disciplines are represented in this volume which features over 25 articles originally published in a wide array of professional disciplines.

The articles assembled in this volume represent key contemporary theories, comparative research and case studies. Contributors are drawn from the disciplines of sociology, anthropology, economics, cultural studies, political science and history. These works represent essential readings for students and professional researchers with interests in migration, globalization, ethnic relations, culture and identity.
A recognition of the way social phenomena are gendered has become increasingly common in the past twenty years. This volume demonstrates the ways in which a gender perspective has been both incorporated into existing themes and methods of migration research, and has also led to the development of new areas of interest. This volume draws together articles based on gender and migration research in North America, Latin America, Africa and Asia to highlight major theoretical developments relating to employment, gender relations, household organisation, identity, citizenship, transnationlism and migration policy. In the introduction, the editors provide an overview of these key developments and the methods adopted in gender and migration research, as well as suggesting topics for future research. This volume will be of great interest to demographers, geographers and gender studies researchers as it provides a selection of the key articles arising out of the dynamic area of gender and migration research.
