Recensies en Artikelen

“This volume is an important contribution to the complex and challenging issue of family migration. Though a scholarly work, its accessible style will interest students, academics, policy advisers and the public.” Loretta Baldassar, Monash University Prato Centre, Italy "Though literature of family in migration is often caught in culture-specific problematics, this book's special focus on both macro and micro levels expands its potential readership beyond scholars. A real success." Rosita Fibbi, Swiss Forum for Migration and Population Studies, University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland "The diversity of disciplinary approaches on gender, generation and the family with an international focus alongside an emphasis on the social and cultural concomitants of migration marks this as essential reading." -- Kanwal Mand, School of Applied Social Science, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK|"This edited volume constitutes, no doubt, an important input to a better understanding of the relationship between families and international migration, taking also into account gender and intergenerational dimensions." -- European Journal of Population, Vol.28, 2012

Gender, Generations and the Family in International Migration

Familie gerelateerde migratie staat in het centrum van de huidige politieke debatten over migratie, integratie en multiculturaliteit in Europa. Meer en meer geeft het ook aanleiding tot academische onderzoek. Toch gebeurt dit onderzoek naar gezinsmigratie veelal gescheiden van onderzoek naar migrantenfamilies.

Dit boek tracht deze interdisciplinaire kloof te overbruggen. De auteurs richten zich gezamenlijk op de noodzaak tot een beter begrip te komen van de diversiteit van familiegerelateerde migratie.

In vijftien hoofdstukken met een aantal gemeenschappelijke thema’s verwerpen ze de simplistische aannames over allochtone gezinnen, zoals gebezigd wordt in publieke debatten, om als alternatief hiervoor voor te stellen gezinsmigratie te bestuderen vanuit een mix van disciplinaire perspectieven, op diverse niveaus en via verschillende methodologische benaderingen.
