British Migration


This title will ship upon release.

For a long time British emigration has suffered from a seeming invisibility in academia, public perception and policy making. This edited collection brings together leading scholars to explore cutting edge research on British migrants in an international range of settings. This book explores the diversities which exist within and between British migrants, and the importance of spatial context. By drawing together a range of research conducted with migrants from different backgrounds to different national contexts, this book reveals that the operation of social structural factors in Britain, such as class, race and ethnicity, gender and age often continue in new migratory contexts, albeit combined with new meanings and performances. In turn, these aspects of identity may mediate attitudes to, and experiences of, return to Britain. This book will provide an important contribution to the expanding and highly topical field analysing migration as an aspect of globalisation, transnational identities and multiculturalism.
