In this regular last issue of the 14th volume, we begin with Cooke and Shuttleworth discussing the ways in which internet and migration might be connected with a focus on migration in the US. The second article by Yotebieng aims to set an agenda for understanding the entanglement of forced migration to urban areas and policy and practice potentials around urban refugee health. Nzima and Moyo in the third article elaborate a new construct they call “diaspora trap”. Ahmed in the fourth article discusses the necessity of interdisciplinary approaches in studying migration while also making a case for insecurity and migration debate. The fifth article by Aragonés Castañer and Salgado Nieto looks into the effects of climate change on rural populations and the circumstances under which some of them are forced to abandon their communities becoming part of international migratory flows. They found that the migration is the result of adverse economic-climatic conditions, because the poorest populations, which usually depend directly on natural resources, are the most vulnerable to climate shocks and the only way to overcome their vulnerability, has been international migration. The final article is our review of citations in migration studies.
