Routledge Series on Asian Migration


About the Series

Asia is now the most essential and dynamic region receiving and sending both long-term and short-term migrants, undertaking migration in all routes and in various forms. This series addresses various imminent trends of international migration in Asia, and the development of various Asian diaspora communities around the world. It brings together interests and efforts on migration studies focusing on the plights of Asian migrants within and beyond Asia, as well as all levels of governance and management of migration.

Books in the series broaden the discussions of the relationship between migration and globalization, transnationalism, development, governance, inter-cultural studies, and identity and diaspora. They address specific social and cultural dynamics – such as gender relations, population, family and marriage patterns, new class formation, and the transformation of cultural values – that have been brought by Asian migration. This series highlights Asia as a region with the most active migration movements, which should be one of the most essential areas bringing critical social changes within and across national boundaries.

The series welcomes submissions from prominent scholars in Asian Migration studies as well as emerging scholars with empirically rich and updated research.
