Migration and Development: Perspectives from the South

ed. by Stephen Castles & Raúl Delgado Wise. International Organization for Migration. 2008.314p. illus. maps. UN Sales # E.08.III.S.10. pap. $35.


This collection of essays examines the relationship between migration from the
South to the North (i.e., from poor countries to wealthy ones) and economic development in the South. The North, which has dominated the debate on this subject, has focused mainly on national security, immigration control, assimilation, and remittances. The editors seek to broaden the discussion by advocating a comprehensive analysis of the processes taking place. This
involves, for example, considering migration and development in the context of all North-South relationships. This book is appropriate for most college students.
