Categories: GESIS-News

The book “Migration Research in a Digitized World. Using Innovative Technology to Tackle Methodological Challenges” edited by Steffen Pötzschke (GESIS – Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences) and Sebastian Rinken (Spanish Research Council’s Institute for Advanced Social Studies (IESA-CSIC)) is now available in open access and print. This volume explores implications of the digital revolution for migration scholars’ methodological toolkit. New information and communication technologies hold considerable potential to improve the quality of migration research by originating previously non-viable solutions to a myriad of methodological challenges in this field of study. Combining cutting-edge migration scholarship and methodological expertise, the book addresses a range of crucial issues related to both researcher-designed data collections and the secondary use of “big data”, highlighting opportunities as well as challenges and limitations. A valuable source for students and scholars engaged in migration research, the book will also be of keen interest to policymakers.
