Migration Studies: New Journal Launched
Current and former staff at the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) and the International Migration Institute (IMI) have launched a new multi-disciplinary refereed journal to be published by Oxford University Press - Migration Studies.
The journal will publish work that significantly advances understanding of the determinants, processes and outcomes of human migration in all its manifestations.
The journal, which will publish for the first time in the Spring of 2013, is edited by Alan Gamlen of the Victoria University Wellington, formerly an ESRC Post-doctoral Fellow at IMI. The Associate Editors are Alex Betts and Nando Sigona of the RSC, Thomas Lacroix of the University of Poitiers, Emanuela Paoletti of the Office of the UNHCR, and Carlos Vargas-Silva of the Centre on Migration Policy and Society (COMPAS).
