The expert contributors explore fundamental issues of scientific logic, methodology and methods, through to practical applications of different techniques and approaches in migration research.
The chapters maintain an introductory level of discussion on migration research methods, while providing readers with references necessary for those wishing to go deeper into the topic.
The Handbook also covers issues relating to the collection of data on migrants, including topics such as survey designs, interviewing techniques and ethical issues.
