"Aiming to bridge different disciplinary approaches, especially economics and other social sciences, this anthology is an invaluable addition to the interdisciplinary literature in the field of migration." -- Pieter Bevelander, Associate Professor, International Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER) and Malmo Institute of Migration, Diversity and Welfare (MIM), Malmo University - "Migrants and Markets is an excellent example of fruitful cooperation among economists, sociologists and political scientists. From the impact Chinese student migration has on the UK and France to varying methodologies for remittance research, the array of topics is testament to how different fields can mutually enrich each other." -- Thomas Straubhaar, Director of the Hamburg Institute of International Economics and Professor of Economics at the University of HamburgVom Verlag:
The established academic discipline that is economics and migration research - as a growing sub-discipline that has inevitably transgressed its own academic bounds - have long treated each other with mutual indifference. While migration research has suffered from a normative overstretch, economics has often reduced its analytical scope to those areas that traditionally belong to the 'genuine' economic sphere. Migrants and Markets contains eleven case studies that aim to overcome this artificially imposed barrier between economics and migration research. This is accomplished by applying economic methods to migratory phenomena, using economic theories to explain migratory patterns and by approaching the structure and development of markets as integral to the shaping of stocks and flows of migrants.
