Routledge Handbook of Migration and Development

The recently published ‘Routledge Handbook of Migration and Development’, edited by Prof. Ronald Skeldon and Dr. Tanja Bastia, provides an interdisciplinary, agenda-setting survey of the fields of migration and development. The publication brings together, over 60 expert contributors from around the world, including several scholars from the Migration and Development Research Group at UNU-MERIT and its School of Governance as well as other MACIMIDE fellows. Prof. Hein de Haas wrote the chapter ‘Paradoxes of Migration and Development’, Prof. Ronald Skeldon discussed the topic of ‘Skilled Migration’, Prof. Melissa Siegel authored a chapter titled ‘Migration and Health’, and PhD Candidate Elaine McGregor wrote the chapter ‘Migration, the MDGs, and SDGs: Context and Complexity’. Given the increasing importance of migration in both international development and current affairs, the Handbook will be of interest both to policymakers, students and researchers of different disciplines.
