Summary/Abstract: Migration research is newer than the phenomenon itself owing to the fact that the phenomenon per se received delayed attention from researchers, academia, policymakers and international communities. This resulted in deficiencies in unified-but-suitable migration research methods for various socio economic settings and geopolitical locales. As migration connects both developed and developing worlds and the recent proliferation of migrants all over the world suggests the importance of migration research at multidisciplinary level (Vargas Silva, 2012). The striking fact is that scholarly interest in migration studies unprecedentedly increased over the last two decades. Two decades ago, migration research had a negligible presence in social scientific inquiry. Today, however, growing scholarly interest in migration is undisputable (Yalaz & Zapata-Barrero,2017). ‘While half a century ago, migration research was a peripheral area of study within traditional academic disciplines, today it has become a firmly established interdisciplinary field (Yalaz & Zapata-Barrero, 2017:3).’
