Overview

Recent migration in Europe has a whole range of characteristics which are said to distinguish it from earlier migration, and the description 'new migration' is often used. Based on a wide range of empirical case studies of the new migration, this book asks three critical questions. To what extent is the description 'new' conceptually valid? How is the new migration defined and by whom? How is the new migration experienced by migrants themselves?

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Finds that the new wave of migration is characterized by increasing numbers, changing profiles, feminization, and new geographical patterns, but is most important for eliciting new political responses in destination countries and new strategies for resisting them by migrants. Elaborates three research strategies: placing the new migration in a broader context; investigating how the concept of migration is socially constructed; and revealing the social realities. Case studies from throughout Europe focus on identity, vulnerability, resistance, and other themes. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
