Out now: Special Issues on #Migration Politics across the World / Regions in Global Migration Governance

A new Special Issue on The Politics of Migration Policies has been published in Third World Quarterly, guest edited by  Katharina Natter and Hélène Thiollet. And Sandra Lavenex and Nicola Piper have guest edited a SI in the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies on “Regions in Global Migration Governance”. I had the pleasure to contribute to both SIs; find more information on the content and free epapers here:

The TWQ SI includes a conceptional introduction asking “Theorising migration politics: do political regimes matter?” and a wide variety of case studies including Argentinia, Tunisia, Japan / South Korea, US/Australia, the Philippines, China and Saudi Arabia.

You cand find it here:


some of the articles, including the introduction, are open access. If you are interested in a copy of my article  on “The ‘gold standard’ for labour export? The role of civil society in shaping multi-level Philippine migration policies”, you can download a free eprint here (limited number available):


The JEMS SI includes an introduction on “Regions and global migration governance: perspectives ‘from above’, ‘from below’ and ‘from beyond’” which is open access – you can find it and the other contributions here:


If you are interested in the article by Nicola Piper and me on “Governing regional migration from the ‘bottom-up’: a nodal approach to the role of transnational activist networks in Asia”, drop me a line – I might be able to add a free eprint link later, so check back for updates
