Migration Matters to everybody - individuals, families, groups, societies, cultures, and governments - because globalism is pushing the world, boundaries are contested, localities are changing, and hundreds of millions of people are relocating. Authors from Australia, EU countries, and Israel explore: struggles for social rights, personhood, and citizenship based on contribution to community contradictions between regulations and responsibilities for refugees, resulting in return of many people to countries where they are in mortal danger multi-cultural populations, challenges of transition and resettlement newcomers' efforts to retain identity and patterns of culture, sometimes producing culture conflicts and stress needs for host countries to adjust to shifting shapes of their societies active citizenship through commitment and participation extreme distress due to vast cultural differences generating homicide. In this timely and significant contribution to global understanding of migration dynamics, authors define needs for holistic responses to migration issues, and seek pathways to greater harmony and wellbeing in transitions.

International migration remains the orphan child of globalization. Rapid development from the last quarter of the twentieth century has resulted in a world more unequal than ever before. Mobility of people needs to be understood as the natural corollary to international trade and capital. Sustaining global economic growth rates and progressing towards an equitable global order will be predicated substantially on the free movement of people. Transnational economic migration will be the next frontier of globalization. There is urgent need to move to a rule-based, binding set of principles that would require states to willingly cede some degree of their sovereignty on matters of economic migration to a multilateral process. Failure to do so will likely generate conflict of an order that can jeopardize the very basis of a modern, progressive and democratic future for all. This book tells an interesting storyaof development as seen from the lens of mobilityaof how important migration has been, is, and will increasingly be for human development. "

Migration und Entwicklung: Diese beiden Prozesse wurden seit den 1960ern in wechselnde Zusammenhänge zueinander gebracht. Seit den 1970ern war vor allem vom Brain Drain, dem Verlust der besten Köpfe in Entwicklungsländern, die Rede. Migrantische, herkunftslandbezogene Aktivitäten wurden zudem immer wieder als konfliktschürend bewertet oder erschienen unbedeutend und blieben deshalb unter dem Radar entwicklungs- und migrationspolitischer Agenturen. Dies änderte sich mit der Jahrtausendwende und der Entdeckung migrantischer Rücküberweisungen. Diese setzte einen Aktivierungsfuror in Gang: Eine unübersichtliche Zahl an Migration&Entwicklungs-Projekten und -Studien entstand. Sie alle haben zum Ziel, migrantische Potentiale für die Entwicklung ihrer Herkunftsländer nutzbar zu machen und migrantische Aktivitäten und Bewegungen im Sinne der Entwicklung zu kanalisieren oder sie mit der institutionalisierten Entwicklungszusammenarbeit zusammenzubringen. Der vorliegende Band nimmt die Effekte dieses Hypes um Migration&Entwicklung für verschiedene migrantische, entwicklungspolitische und städtische Akteure in den Blick. Er beschäftigt sich mit den diskursiven Verschiebungen, neuen Subjektivierungen, Irritationen und Aushandlungen, die mit der 'Entdeckung' des entwicklungspolitischen Potentials von Migrant_innen einhergehen.

Deze studie ontwikkelt een geheel nieuwe benadering van het vraagstuk: Hoe wordt migratie- en integratiebeleid in tien Europese landen gemaakt? Wie is daarbij betrokken? Welke invloed hebben wetenschappers en maatschappelijke partners op de vorming en uitvoering van beleid? De auteurs concluderen dat beleid begrepen moet worden als resultaat van nationale historische verhoudingen en opvattingen binnen nationale contexten enerzijds, en anderzijds ontstaan is onder invloed van wereldwijde en supra-nationale invloeden.

The Securitization of Humanitarian Migration

This book examines how western liberal states are progressively restricting access to refugees and asylum seekers, even though these states have signed international agreements obliging them to offer protection to those fleeing persecution and to advocate the spread of human rights and humanitarian principles. Watson examines how refugees and asylum seekers have come to be treated so poorly by these states through the use of policies such as visa requirements, mandatory detention and prevention/return policies. Providing extensive documentary analysis of debates on ‘restrictive’ refugee policies in Canada and Australia, the author addresses the relationship between security and migration, an issue of increased importance in the aftermath of 9/11 and the war on terror. He then examines hotly-contested policies such as detention and the forceful return of asylum seekers to demonstrate how attempts to securitise these issues have been resisted in the media and by political opposition. Given the importance of providing refuge for persecuted populations, not only to ensure the survival of targeted individuals, but also to maintain international peace and security, the erosion of protective measures is of great importance today. The book will be of interest to students and scholars of international security, international relations, migration and human rights

In recent years, global migration has transformed in terms of its numbers and reach, its political significance, and its impact. The rising rates of international migration have been matched by growing public and media interest around the world. Today, the political and media attention on migration and greater public interest and concern feed into an international debate that is all too often poorly informed and one-sided. This Very Short Introduction looks at the phenomenon of international human migration - both legal and illegal - and offers an objective stance on the topic, and its benefits and challenges. Khalid Koser reveals the opportunities migration presents that must be taken advantage of in the current economic climate, and debunks common myths to demonstrate that society, as we now know it, cannot function without migrants. Using interviews with migrants from around the world, Koser presents the human side of issues such as asylum, human trafficking, migrant smuggling, and the international labour force, inviting readers to come to their own conclusions on the international migration situation today. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

The Effects of Migration on Child Health in Mexico

The authors investigate the impact of international migration on child health outcomes in rural Mexico using a nationally representative demographic survey. They use historic migration networks as instruments for current household migration to the United States in order to correct for the possible endogeneity of migrant status. They find that children in migrant households have lower rates of infant mortality and higher birth-weights. The authors study the channels through which migration may affect health outcomes and find evidence that migration raises health knowledge in addition to the direct effect on wealth. However they also find that preventative health care, such as breastfeeding and vaccinations, is less likely for children in migrant households. These results provide a broader and more nuanced view of the health consequences of migration than is offered by the existing literature.

The continuum of exploitation that has historically defined the everyday of domestic work - exclusion from employment and social security standards and precarious migration status – has frequently been neglected. It is primarily the moments of crisis, incidents of human trafficking, slavery or forced labour, that have captured the attention of human rights law. Only recently has human rights law has begun to address the structured inequalities and exclusions that define the domain of domestic work. This book addresses the specific position of domestic workers in the context of evolving human rights norms. Drawing upon a broad range of case studies, this book presents a thorough examination of key issues such as the commodification of care, the impact of the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights on ‘primary care providers’, as well as the effect that trends in migration law have on migrant domestic workers. This volume will be of interest to lawyers, academics and policy makers in the fields of human rights, migration, and gender studies.

The Logics and Politics of Post-WWII Migration to Western Europe

Few phenomena have been more disruptive to West European politics and society than the accumulative experience of post-WWII immigration. Against this backdrop spring two questions: Why have the immigrant-receiving states historically permitted high levels of immigration? To what degree can the social and political fallout precipitated by immigration be politically managed? Utilizing evidence from a variety of sources, this study explores the links between immigration and the surge of popular support for anti-immigrant groups; its implications for state sovereignty; its elevation to the policy agenda of the European Union; and its domestic legacies. It argues that post-WWII migration is primarily an interest-driven phenomenon that has historically served the macroeconomic and political interests of the receiving countries. Moreover, it is the role of politics in adjudicating the claims presented by domestic economic actors, foreign policy commitments, and humanitarian norms that creates a permissive environment for significant migration to Western Europe.
