Call for Abstracts:
Migration in the Global South
While the preponderance of migration research focuses on immigrants to developed countries, most international migration occurs between developing countries in what is often referred to as the global south (Abel and Sander 2014). Migration to developing countries, many of which are among the new immigrant destinations, is not well integrated with migration theory broadly (Winders 2014). More fully incorporating migration to the global south into our theoretical paradigms is necessary to produce better knowledge about the forces shaping migration, the integration and/or exclusion of migrants, how migrants are shaping the economies and sociopolitical contexts of their receiving societies, and transnational connections and exchanges emerging from international migration.
This special issue of the International Journal of Sociology will
address this important and growing area in the field of international
sociology and migration studies. We invite authors to submit extended abstracts (300-500 words) that address the topic of migration into and through the Global South; we especially encourage submissions that will contribute to migration and/or globalization theory broadly. We welcome both empirical and theoretical submissions, as well as work that is interdisciplinary.
The deadline for abstract submissions is May 29, 2015. If authors are invited to submit full papers, they will need to submit their manuscripts of 9,000 words or less by September 15, 2015. We expect to publish the special issue in early 2016.
The International Journal of Sociology (IJS) published by Taylor and
Francis(http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/mijs20/current#.VS0LJPASytM) has a long tradition of publishing thematic issues on topics of interest to a wide sociological audience and continually breaks new ground in its coverage of issues central to cross-national and comparative scholarship in sociology.
