Katie Wright explores how human wellbeing is constructed and how it 'travels' across spatial boundaries.

'This innovative book by Katie Wright provides a much needed new perspective on the interrelations between international migration, development and wellbeing. It manages to skillfully combine fascinating empirical insights from the lives of migrants with a new conceptual approach to international migration that focuses on human wellbeing. This book will appeal to a very wide audience of migration and development scholars and serves as a major contribution to contemporary understandings of the experiences of international migrants.' - Professor Cathy McIlwaine, Queen Mary, University of London, UK.
'This rich comparative and multi-sited investigation of international migration goes beyond the narrow focus of traditional economic perspectives, providing a holistic and perceptive approach that foregrounds migrants' understandings of and quest for wellbeing and happiness.' - Professor Manuel A. Vásquez, University of Florida, USA.
