Covering both qualitative and quantitative topics, the expert contributors in this Handbook explore fundamental issues of scientific logic, methodology and methods to practical applications of different techniques and approaches in migration research.

Using a combination of concepts and techniques with research experiences from the field, this Handbook will prove to be an invaluable guide. Master level students and academics in migration related programs would find this compendium a useful and stimulating resource. It also discusses issues related to the collection of data on migrants including topics such a survey designed, interviewing techniques and ethical issues that policymakers and government employees will find informative.
