Migration is one of the defining issues of our time. Many economic, social, and political issues can be traced to differing opinions about the benefits and costs of immigration. Yet this is not just a recent or passing topic. The causes and consequences of migration have been long debated in academic and public circles (see National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, 2017 for a review). Despite the importance of the phenomenon, organizational scholars have rarely incorporated migration as a focus of study. The topic has been studied mainly in other disciplines, focusing on issues seemingly far removed from organizations and more germane to policy—such as the effects of immigration on labor markets, aggregate demand, or global trade.This special issue of Organization Science seeks to bring the study of migration to the core of organizational research, resulting in a distinctive stream of inquiry linking human mobility across borders the internal workings of organizations, their strategic choices, and the performance consequences of those workings and choices. While migration involves the movement of people across borders, its antecedents and consequences may be domestic or international. Hence the topic is relevant to organizations regardless of their geographic scope.
