Back to Publications

Migration: The COMPAS Anthology is a unique compendium of short articles, poems and images on the multiple interlinked practices, policies, responses and experiences that make up the phenomenon ‘migration’. This anthology is designed both as a teaching and research resource and as a provocation, posing questions and sharing insights on migration and linking it to wider patterns of social change.

Edited by Bridget Anderson and Michael Keith, the Anthology brings together migration experts and winners from COMPAS’ photo and poetry competitions to give their take on migration, ranging from personal reflections to succinct topic overviews.

It includes contributions from: Ash Amin, Bridget Anderson, Linda Bosniak, Stephen Castles, Jane Garnett, Engin Isin, Michael Keith, John Solomos, Sarah Spencer, Steven Vertovec and Fiona Williams.

We will even throw in some COMPAS postcards for free!
