The Cultures of Economic Migration: International Perspectives
Suman Gupta, Tope Omoniyi
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Nov 1, 2007 - Social Science - 226 pages
This volume explores the processes of economic migration, the social conditions that follow it and the discourses that underlie research into it. Reflecting critically on economic migration and on the process of studying and creating knowledge about it, the contributors address the question of whether recent enquiries into modernity bring a newer and better comprehension of the nature of dislocation and movement, or whether these serve simply to replicate familiar modes of placing people and individuals. The book is organized into perspectives in and on specific continents – Europe, Asia and Africa – in order to explore notions regarding economic migration within and across regions as well as towards displacing the Eurocentrism of many studies of migration.
