About this book

This volume investigates new migration patterns in the Americas addressing continuities and changes in existing population movements in the region. The book explores migration conditions and intersections across time and space relying on a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach that brings together the expertise of transnational scholars with diverse theoretical orientations, strengths, and methodological approaches. Some of the themes this edited volume explores include main features of contemporary migration in the Americas; causes, composition, and patterns of new migration flows; and state policies enacted to meet the challenges posed by new developments in migration flows.

Reviews

“The volume provides a cohesive and much-needed update of migration flows in the region and challenges existing theories and paradigms to understand such flows. It is an excellent collection offering truly interdisciplinary transregional approaches and identifying new trends in the movement of people across and beyond the region.” (Alexandra Délano Alonso, author of From Here and There: Diaspora Policies, Integration and Social Rights Beyond Borders)

“It is hard to find a book investigating contemporary human mobility in the Americas this thoroughly. The contributions of different regional experts produce a comprehensive view of the complex migration dynamics that characterize mobility in this region, going beyond traditional research on south-north movements. This is a unique contribution to the literature on international and regional migration in the Americas that defies traditional paradigms.” (Laura Velasco Ortiz, co-author of Mexican Voices of the Border Region: Mexican and Mexican Americans Speak about Living along the Wall)

“This is an agenda-setting book that brings together issues and contemporary debates on human mobility from a regional perspective by analyzing new and old trends on migration in the Americas.  This book proposes a new lens for examining mobility patterns in this region: it is a systematic study on the composition and dynamic of migration flows in the contemporary scenario characterized by the control politics and criminalization of immigrants and their families. This book must be read by all those interested in a better understanding of the migration-violence nexus and, consequently, new migration patterns in the region.” (Liliana Rivera-Sánchez, co-author of The Practice of Research on Migration and Mobilities)
