About the eBook

Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

International migration has emerged as one of the most pressing issues faced by national and regional governments in our modern world. This Research Agenda provides much-needed discussion on the health of migrants, and fundamental research directions for the future. The editors draw together key contributions that address people with a range of immigration statuses, including refugees.

Written by leading experts in the field, chapters explore the evolving nature of health, from how this is experienced by migrants in their countries of origin, to the impact of the immigrant journey and experiences in their country of residence. Topical and timely, the Research Agenda offers key insights into previously underdeveloped areas of study, including an analysis of female migrants, a discussion of immigration relative to the Global South, and the relationship between climate change, migration and health.

An important read for human geography scholars, this will be particularly useful for those looking into population and health geography and demography. It will also be beneficial to sociology and anthropology scholars interested in immigration and health.
