The Encyclopedia of Global Human Migration is published. It is an amazing resource, providing ‘a complete exploration of the prominent themes, events, and theoretical underpinnings of the movements of human populations from prehistory to the present day. It includes thematic interpretations and theories of migration, as well as the significant contemporary scientific discoveries and scholarly interpretations that have reshaped the way historians and social scientists analyze and map the past’.
Please see my section called ‘International Migration and Social Theory’. It’s a quick summary of a range of theories of migration and makes the case for practice theory as a meta-theoretical framework for migration processes.
