Migration Practice as Creative Practice: An Interdisciplinary Exploration of Migration presents an in-depth evaluation of the contributions made by migrants to modern socio-economic structures. 

Leading with discussion of the historical construction of migration and what it signifies in the modern globalised economies, an interdisciplinary range of contributors examine the interaction of migrants with new cultures, as well as migrants’ acculturation into the new environments and what that signifies for community relations. The book also discusses the creative energies that migrant inject in the economic structures in both private and public spheres. 

Migration Practice as Creative Practice shows particular interest to how migrants use their social lives, lived experiences, and the process of identity formation, as well as their histories and families to inject positive ‘newness’ into host cultural and economic architectures. It calls for more creative ways of researching migrant movements and lived experiences, and brings to life the different ways of approaching migrant research for scholars today.
