Analysis on transit migration in Europe

1 June 2012

New articles by Franck Düvell examine the concept of transit migration. 

Dr. Düvell has published two articles in Population, Space and Place, Volume 18 (4). The article "Transit Migration: A Blurred and Politicised Concept" examines the emergence and construction of the concept of transit migration and the political framework and discourses that brought about this concept. It also critically surveys and analyses causes and conditions of transit migration, identifies its geography and discusses some methodological and analytical pitfalls and difficulties of researching transit migration.

The second article "Critical Approaches to Transit Migration" traces the origins of the label 'transit migration' to discussions of what was called the 'new migration' in the early 1990s.
