The International Migration Institute has made the book ‘African Migrations Research – Innovative Methods and Methodologies’ freely available. The book is edited by Mohamed Beriane and Hein de Haas. The aim of the book is to contribute to the development of independent reflections on research methodologies and, particularly, the relationship between methodologies and our conceptualization of migration issues both inside and outside Africa. This should contribute to the elaboration of a migration research agenda which is driven by relevant empirical and theoretical questions rather than by policy concerns focused on immigration control, or by ill-founded hysteria around alleged ‘mass’ migration from Africa to Europe.
