Social Cognition and Migration Politics

Social Cognition and Migration Politics

Edited by:

February 2022 | 238 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

New intellectual approaches—ideas crossing disciplinary borders—can inform our understanding of people crossing borders—migration-based social diversity—and the design of public policies in diverse societies. This volume of The ANNALS focuses on the benefits of developing transdisciplinary research designs to collect data from international migrants and hosts, while stressing that it would be beneficial to consider broader, more representative samples’ social cognitive processes.

This volume is based on a workshop series that gathered more than seventy scholars from all around the world over the course of three years. Trained in various academic fields, including economics, computer sciences, political science, and social psychology, the presenters and discussants all contributed to sharpening our approach to the cognition and migration nexus. The final selection of articles included in this volume draws on methods ranging from ethnographic fieldwork, in airports or courtrooms, to survey experiments with nationally representative samples.
