Description

Over the last decade a substantial academic and policy literature has emerged around the phenomenon of international health worker migration.
The book approaches cross-border health worker migration through the analytical lens of globalisation, global governance and global social policy and through the normative lens of human rights and social justice. It will be the first sustained analysis of international health worker migration through the analytical lens of global governance, politics and policy formation.
The overall content and arguments of the book are drawn from primary research into more than twenty multilateral organisations, extensively supplemented by accumulated knowledge and understanding of global health worker migration from the authors' previous research, secondary analysis of international datasets spanning all continents of the world, and our analysis of policy and wider social trends distilled in academic, policy and `grey' literatures.
