Abstract:

Exploring Contemporary Migration provides the first comprehensive introduction to the various aspects of population migration in both the developed and the developing worlds. Some of the most important quantitative and qualitative methods used for the description and analysis of migration are presented in a clearly structured and accessible way.

These patterns are then explored through the use of specific migration-related themes: employment, stage in the life course, quality of lif.
