Like migration itself, econorrdc research on migration seems to come in waves. The large scale of current global migration, and the sometimes quite ugly politics associated with immigration, have produced just such a wave of research. Theoretical and empirical research on migration, in particuiar, occurs across the social sciences, with particularly large bodies in economics, demography/sociology and political science. Within economics, the study of migration falls between trade and Iabour economics, with sizable bodies of both theoretical and econometric work.
