Migration and ethnic studies are on the rise. Often largely oriented towards the United States and other countries with longer, older narratives of immigration, a body of literature has rapidly grown and, within it, a European research area is emerging. This premiere volume in the IMISCOE Textbooks Series assembles for the first time a comprehensive collection of 25 classic papers that have had a lasting impact on studies of international migration and immigrant integration in Europe.
The editors answer the pressing need for such a perspective on international migration seen through different scientific disciplines and methodological approaches. Selected Studies is a textbook for advanced undergraduates and PhD students in the social sciences, political science, cultural anthropology, economics and social history as well as anyone interested in migration and integration studies.
