One sample search might be something like:  Africa AND ethnic group* 

Or just the name of the culture group, combined with the phrase "social  conditions"  :   Asian AND "social conditions"

Another example of combining concepts/terms, like this:  Hispanic* AND cultur*

The asterisks at the end of the word are truncation features, and allow you to pick up variations of the word:

culture or cultures or cultural without having to type out separately all the variations of a word.

The quotation marks around a phrase mean, search  for that exact phrase, not each word separately.

Religious and Ethical Perspectives on Global Migration

.This book provides insight for ethics, moral philosophy, social and political philosophy, religious studies, social justice, globalization, and identity formation.

Causes and Consequences of Global Migration

This book has been written for those who want to find out more about why people migrate and what the consequences are of their doing so. It looks at what motives drive people to migrate and at migrants' economic outcomes in their destination countries. It describes the state of knowledge about the economic and social consequences of migration for the communities that receive the migrants.

Border and Rule

This book shows migrant crises to be the inevitable outcomes of conquest, capitalist globalization, and climate change generating mass dispossession worldwide. It explores a number of seemingly disparate global geographies with shared logics of border rule that displace, immobilize, criminalize, exploit, and expel migrants and refugees.
