About This Book

Draws together a range of methods and practices of value in empirical research on the nexus between 'migration' and 'family'. The volume locates these methods within the broad context of the issues surrounding migration to the family in Asia and Europe, giving an overview of the recent issues surrounding the family and migration, as well as providing a brief history of such research in Europe. Quantitative approaches are first discussed, with a focus on the methodological issues related to the use of both census and longitudinal data in family and migration research. The second part of the book focuses on qualitative approaches. The theoretical background to these approaches is first provided, tracing the main developments in qualitative research, as well as the fundamental paradigms underpinning such methodologies.
