In this publication, leading migration experts gather together twenty-nine field specialists to consider the major questions and challenges related to the issue of international migration. Integrating the perspectives of the wide variety of fields that hold a stake in the study of migration—political science, sociology, economics, anthropology—this volume presents an unprecedented interdisciplinary look at an issue that defines the modern era: the large-scale movement of people across international borders. It begins with three articles analyzing the origins and causes of migration, including both source and destination states. The second section then asks: What are the consequences of migration at both ends of the migration chain? Articles in this section consider economics, the effects of migration on parties and political participation, and social and cultural effects. A third group of articles focuses on immigration policy. These include primers on the history and dimensions of migration policy, as well as an examinations of the effects of public opinion, interest groups, and international relations on policymaking. The volume then considers aspects of the immigrant experience: segmented assimilation among Asian Americans, histories of U.S. immigrant incorporation and of race and migration, transnationalism, and gendered aspects of migration. Finally, five articles examine contemporary issues, including trans-border crime and terrorism, migration and organized labor, international regionalism, normative debates about citizenship and immigration, and the recent history of U.S. immigration policymaking.

Keywords: international borders; source states; destination states; political participation; social effects; cultural effects; immigration policy; international relations; segmented assimilation; race
