International editorial advisory board

This monograph series showcases original research that looks at the nexus between migration, citizenship and social change. This series aims to open up interdisciplinary terrain and to develop new scholarship in migration and refugee studies that is theoretically insightful and innovative, empirically rich and policy engaged.

The series includes research-based monographs and occasionally edited collections, informed by a range of qualitative and quantitative research methods. It is open to in-depth ethnographic/qualitative case studies, international comparative analyses, and everything between. We welcome contributions that that address drivers and dynamics of migration, exile, transnationalism and social change at different scales, and which pay attention to different intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender and age, and other key identity markers.

Topics may include but are not limited to the following:

  • The migration and citizenship nexus
  • The construction of borders and practices of bordering
  • New processes of migration governance at different scales
  • Emerging forms of migrant diversity
  • Politics and practices of belonging
  • The changing legal statuses of migration and migrants
  • New manifestations of transnationalism and diaspora
  • The nature and causes of migration ‘crises’
  • Geopolitical disruptions and human mobility
