Giacomo Solano, MPG’s Head of Research, and Thomas Huddleston, MPG’s Former Research Director, have co-authored chapter within the new open access book ‘Introduction to Migration Studies. An Interactive Guide to the Literatures on Migration and Diversity’. The chapter written by Solano and Huddleston and titled “Migration Policy Indicators”, provides an overview of the existing indexes and indicators created over the last 20 years – mainly at the national level – and compares the methodology employed as well as their temporal, geographical, and thematic coverage.
The open access book itself provides an introduction to theories, concepts and methodological approaches concerning various facets of migration and migration-related diversities. It starts with an introduction to migration studies and continues with an introductory reading of migration drivers, migration infrastructures, migration flows, and several transversal topics such as gender and migration. It also covers politics, policies and governance as well as specific research methods. It is based on the Cross-Migration project, ended last year and aimed at created a comprehensive database on peer reviewed research on migration to facilitate systematic knowledge accumulation in the field of migration studies.
