RSPP Call for Paper
Special Issue on Understanding People's Views on Immigration
Guest Editor: Dr. Bruce Newbold, McMaster University
Aims and Scope of the Special Edition
In an era when globalization and economic integration has facilitated movement from poor to rich countries, immigration has emerged as one of the most controversial political issues. International migration has long been associated with economic motivations and individual responses. While economic considerations continue to motivate a portion of international movements, war, civil strife, inequalities in health, well-being, and/or income across space drive migration. But the movement of individuals at the global scale has been increasingly challenged by the rise of populism. In part, the rise of populism has been driven by a sense amongst many in the developed world that they see less opportunity for themselves than in the past. These deep societal and labor market changes bring with them real fears and real costs which have manifested in the rise of new populist parties in countries, along with anti-immigrant policies and programs. Arguably, populism has shifted how much of the globe views immigration.
