The chapter highlights the importance of taking an integrated, interdisciplinary and multiple-stakeholder agenda in the study of migration. It focuses on migration patterns and dynamics within the global South and specifically from South and Southeast Asia. Such a framework we argue allows us to look at migration patterns and dynamics on a continuum of migration, ranging from migrant workers, internally displaced peoples, trafficked peoples and refugees, including environmental refugees. Most empirically driven texts tend to focus on one type of migration. By focusing on the range of existing migration types within an internal and international domain, we gain a more comprehensive insight into the complexity of migration dynamics and processes. We encourage researchers in migration to continue this effort by actively designing research that takes a comparative approach to the various kind of migrations, examining the relationship between migration and non-migration, while looking at the interactions at the micro- to the macro- level that produce people on the move.
