Global Migration, Ethnicity and Britishness Edited by Tariq Modood and John Salt

Modood and Salt book Edited by Tariq Modood and John Salt

This book is a product of the Bristol–UCL Leverhulme Research Programme on Migration and Citizenship (2003–2009). It explores some of the most topical issues around migration and integration in relation to Britain. It examines people smuggling as well as the elite labour migration that has become a feature of Britain. It explores the acquisition and mobility of expertise in global corporate labour markets, and how sectors of British higher education fit into global student and academic markets. At the same time it examines aspects of the concepts of social capital, social cohesion and Britishness. Ethnic capital and ethnic penalties are identified and their links to religion and segregation displayed and it is shown how religion, in the form of aspects of Muslim behavior, is becoming a boundary of Britishness at a time when significant sections of the ethnic majority evinces scepticism about multiculturalism.
