Synopsis: "Demonstrates that the study of international migration has really come of age. From acculturation to undocumented immigration, the authors consider more than three dozen concepts at the heart of migration studies. Clearly written in a highly readable style, the book is a valuable resource for students and scholars alike."
- Nancy Foner, City University of New York

"This very useful and authoritative compendium explicates thirty-eight concepts central to analysis of international migration. It is accessible to undergraduate students and even can enrich graduate courses. It nicely complements books like The Age of Migration or Exceptional People. Concision is a virtue!"
- Mark J. Miller, University of Delaware

This book provides lucid and intuitive explanations of the most important migration concepts as used in classrooms, among policymakers, and in popular and academic discourse. Arguing that there is a clear need for a better public understanding of migration, it sets out to clarify the field by exploring relevant concepts in a direct and engaging way. Each concept:

  • Includes an easy to understand definition
  • Provides real-world examples
  • Gives suggestions for further reading
  • Is carefully cross-referenced to other related concepts
It is an ideal resource for undergraduate and post-graduate students studying migration in sociology, politics, development and throughout the social sciences, as well as scholars in the field and practitioners in governmental and non-governmental organizations.

About the Author: David′s primary research focuses on international migration. His current work explores the relationship between immigration and happiness, investigating whether (as many would assume) migration to a wealthy country is advantageous to the immigrants themselves in the sense that it brings them greater happiness.  Articles emerging from this research have been published in Migration Studies, Social Indicators Research, Journal of Happiness Studies, and International Studies Review, among others.  He has done consulting work on this topic for the International Organization for Migration in Geneva.  He has also held a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council to investigate the UK “citizenship process”.   

David is currently Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Leicester.  He gained a PhD from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and a BA from Kenyon College.  He is also on the board of RC31, the International Sociological Association’s section on the sociology of migration.

Maritsa V. Poros is Associate Professor of Sociology at the City College of the City University of New York and appointed in Sociology at the Graduate Center of CUNY. She specializes in international migration. Her other research interests include social networks, inequalities, international development, race and ethnicity, feminism and urban studies. Her work has addressed the role of migrant networks in shaping labor market processes, the formation and influence of ethnic communities, migrant mobilization in southern Europe and forced migration studies. In 2011, Stanford University Press published her book, Modern Migrations: Gujarati Indian Networks in New York and London, which proposes a relational account of migration and migrant networks. Her book, with co-authors David Bartram and Pierre Monforte, Key Concepts in Migration was published by SAGE in 2014.  Her work has been funded by the National Science Foundation and she has held previous posts in academia and government at the University of East London, the Illinois Institute of Technology and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Pierre Monforte is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Leicester. He received his PhD from the European University Institute in Florence (Italy) and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Universite de Montreal. His research explores the dynamics of protest for migrants′ rights in France, Germany, Canada and the UK.
