New book explores political economy of migration

A new publication by a King’s College London academic explores the political economy of migration.

The International Political Economy of Migration in the Globalisation Era is out now.

Published by Palgrave Macmillan, The International Political Economy of Migration in the Globalisation Era examines a series of theoretical debates from across the spectrum of political economy and their implications on policymaking.

The monograph is authored by Professor Leila Simona Talani, from the Department of European and International Studies at King’s.

Chapters include IPE and Migration: The Role of the State, The Paradox of Regionalisation Within Globalisation: Migration to the EU and to the US Compared, and The Paradox of Securitisation: Is There a Common Migratory Policy in the EU?

Professor Talani said: “This book theoretical debates from the different international political economy approaches and elaborates on the implications of different theories in policymaking and political realms. Migration is examined as an integral part of the global political economy that is structurally connected to the process of globalisation, although the definition of globalisation itself is a subject of enquiry.”
