The IMISCOE-Springer Series

Established to promote research emanating from the IMISCOE Research Network, the IMISCOE publication series has since become one of the main migration related publication series in Europe and beyond, with over 100 titles published since its launch in 2006. It presents empirical and theoretical scholarship addressing issues of migration management and migrant integration in Europe, from different disciplinary perspectives, and with a special interest in new and innovative topics and methods of research. Authored by experts in the field, the works provide a rich reference source for scholars, students, and stakeholders.

The series is published under the editorial supervision of the IMISCOE Editorial Committee which includes leading scholars from all over Europe. Book proposals and manuscripts are rigorously peer reviewed by three international scholars. Most of the books in the IMISCOE Book Series are available in Open Access through our own digital library, Springer and in OAPEN, thanks to the generous contribution of the IMISCOE network.
