In Migration in a Globalised Word, Cédric Audebert and Mohamed Kamel Dorai assemble a number of essays from leading economists, sociologists, and political scientists that examine international migration in light of the growing effects of globalization. Among the topics discussed are migration and social cohesion, transnationalization and the transnational approach, the migration-development nexus, and the blurring categories of refugees and asylum seekers.
