Migration policy is a matter of great significance in modern Asia due to the migration and displacement of large numbers of people, made necessary by economic deprivation, political turmoil and violence, from various Asian countries. Studies on migration policies of Asian countries have recently emerged. While eminent scholars have conducted research on the particular cases of each country, the efforts for integrating them are still ongoing. This title aims to be the main reference work on the topic of migration policies in Asia. It will integrate studies on the migration policies of a large number of Asian countries, published in major academic journals all over the world, to facilitate the further development of this new area of study. The editors aim to balance the composition of chapters in each volume in terms of the variety of regions, countries, topics and academic disciplines for balanced coverage of migration across Asia. This is an interdisciplinary collaborative project with Japan Association for Migration Policy Studies (JAMPS). While the contributions are from not just Asia but across the world, the content will avoid Euro-centric perspectives and focus on the points of view of Asian scholars when covering the history and contemporary situation of migration policies in Asia. Several countries from the East, South-East and South Asian regions will be covered.
