Berghahn Migration and Development Studies Collection

Berghahn Books is proud to be partnering with Knowledge Unlatched to present the Berghahn Migration and Development Studies collection. Every year we will be adding 20 front-list titles to the collection, covering the topics of international migration and movement as well as the social implications of economic and environmental change for communities. As institutions sign up for the collection and pledge their financial support, we are able to fund the cost of making the books available as Open Access.

The collection includes titles from the Forced Migration series as well as the Integration and Conflict Studies and the Environmental Anthropology and Ethnobiology series, among others.

Library Supporters

Thanks to the support of a number of libraries, Berghahn Books has been able to secure 15 OA titles over the past three years. As more libraries sign on, we’ll be able to offer more books from the Migration and Development Studies collection as Open Access, with our goal being to have a total of 15 titles offered as OA over the next 3 years.
