A sociologist and political economist trained at Frankfurt am Main and at the University of Sussex, Castles work focuses on international migration dynamics, global governance, migration and development, and regional migration trends in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Until January 2001 he was Director of the Centre for Asia Pacific Social Transformation Studies at the Universities of Wollongong and Newcastle, Australia.
