The Age of Asian Migration: Continuity, Diversity, and Susceptibility Volume 1

The second half of the 20th century witnessed a series of mass migration in Asia due to war, politics and economic turbulence. Combined with recent global economic changes, the result is that Asia is now the world region producing the most international migrants and receiving the second most migrants. Asian migration has thus been of central concern to both academic researchers and policy communities. This book (together with its forthcoming second volume) provides a full span discussion of Asian migration from historical perspectives to updated analyses of current migration flows and diasporas. The book covers six sub-regional areas through focused themes:

• Northeast Asia: Coping with Diversity in Japan and Korea

• East Asian Chinese Migration: Taiwan, Hong Kong and China

• Vietnamese Migration and Diaspora

• Cambodian, Lao and Hmong Diaspora and Settlement

• Singapore: New Immigrants and Return Migration

• South Asian Migration and Diaspora

Academics as well as general readers will find this book useful for understanding the specific features of Asian migration, and how these features have evolved since the latter part of the 20th century. In providing an overall reassessment of Asian migration, the book enhances academic discussion of Asian migration, with crucial implications for migration-related policy-making in the region.
