The Sociology of Refugee Migration

Sociology of Refugee

A new article about the "Sociology of Refugee Migration" by David Scott FitzGerald and Rawan Arar, University of California has been recently published on the Annual Review of Sociology.

Authors discuss the differences between the sociology of migration and the field of refugee studies. They state that it is critical to recognise the differences of the two fields to understand "contemporary disputes about the scale of refugee crises, appropriate policy responses, and the suitability of different research tools to understand the phenomenon".They also highlight the possibilities of using lenses from existing theories (including for example new economics of labour migration model) to explore and interpret refugees decision making.
