The links between migration and development can be traced back to the post-war period, if not further, yet it is only in the last 15 years that the 'migration-development nexus' has risen to prominence for academics and policy makers. The Routledge Handbook of Migration and Development provides an interdisciplinary, agenda-setting survey of the field, charting current and future trends in migration and development research. Starting by mapping the different theoretical approaches to migration and development, the book goes on to present cutting edge research in poverty and inequality, displacement, climate change, health, family, social policy, interventions and the key challenges surrounding migration and development. While much of the migration literature continues to be dominated by US and British perspectives, this volume includes original contributions from all regions of the world to offer alternative non-Anglophone perspectives. Given the increasing importance of migration in both international development and current affairs, the Routledge Handbook of Migration and Development will be of interest both to policy makers and to students and researchers of geography, development studies, political science, sociology, demography and development economics.
