Migration moves people, ideas and things. The deep entanglement of media and migration expands across the fields of political, cultural and social life. Both those migrating and those receiving them, turn to media and communicative practices to learn how to make sense of migration and to manage fears and desires associated with cross-border mobility in an increasingly porous but also controlled and divided world.

The SAGE Handbook of Media and Migration offers a comprehensive overview of media and migration through new research, as well as a review of present scholarship in this expanding and promising field. It explores key interdisciplinary concepts and methodologies, and how these are challenged by new realities and the links between contemporary migration patterns and its use of mediated processes. In seven parts, the Handbook dissects important areas of cross-disciplinary and generational discourse.
