Diaspora, Migration, Transnationalism Study Group

Sociology of migration, studies of diasporic groups and their transnational activities have received significant scholarly attention in the last twenty years. This area is a fully-fledged field within sociology and our aim is to establish an intellectual home for the study of migration from a sociological perspective.

The Group aims to cover all aspects of migration research, including empirical and theoretical work.  It will promote work which not only focuses on recent flows of people across spaces, but also foreground historical perspectives, and issues of identity, culture and the politics of migration. It will cover and contribute to studies of diaspora and transnationalism.

We aim to advance theoretical and methodological work, promote comparative studies, enhance critical, historical and political understandings of migration and diasporas. In so doing, we will provide a UK platform through which scholars can engage in debate and exchange of ideas.
