Migration Between States and Markets
H. B. Entzinger, Marco Martiniello, Catherine Wihtol de Wenden
Ashgate, 2004 - Social Science - 232 pages
Analyzing the tension between the need for migrant labour and the desire by governments to restrict immigration, this groundbreaking volume debates whether this tension can be overcome and, if so, how this is being achieved. The book adopts a truly global approach to contemporary issues of international migration related to citizenship, integration, transnationalism, brain drain, undocumented migration and related subjects. Experiences from Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia are presented by authors who are native to these countries. Their findings reflect the similarities many countries face in spite of significant differences in development levels and in migration experience. Despite the variety of cases, the contributors arrive at a common conclusion, indicating that their research is applicable the world over. A truly comprehensive volume edited by three of the best-known writers on migration topics in Europe, it will prove indispensable for academics, specialists, researchers and policy makers who are particularly interested in international migration, migration policy and economic development.
