Description

A growing share of the world's population lives in the 175 developing countries, while global income and wealth are increasingly concentrated in the 25 developed countries. The resulting migration from developing to developed countries is proving difficult to manage at national, regional, and local levels. Managing Migration presents the valuable results of the Cooperative Efforts to Manage Emigration project, a bottom-up effort to identify models and best practices for spurring economic development and respect for human rights in migrant countries of origin. Based on the research of experts from North America and Europe, authors Martin, Martin, and Weil discuss the challenges of managing international migration in the 21st century, present case studies in cooperative migration management, and offer recommendations to overcome the existing challenges. Concluding that there is no one-size-fits-all framework for managing migration, but that there are common elements of best-practice migration, Managing Migration is guaranteed to pique the interest of policy makers and practitioners involved in immigration as well as scholars of geography, anthropology, and international relations.show more

Review quote

Interstate cooperation is of paramount importance for the formulation and implementation of coherent migration policies. This book outlines concrete steps that states can take to improve consultation and cooperation in managing movements of people across borders. -- Mamphele Ramphele, Global Commission on International Migration The collaborative work by three leading migration scholars highlights some of the key dilemmas in international migration, and provides a comprehensive analysis of attempts to develop regional and global cooperation. The book's special value lies in the way it originated through a long-term dialogue between researchers and representatives of governments, international agencies, and the media. -- Stephen Castles, University of Oxford Managing Migration provides a comprehensive, informative, readable discussion of all types of human population movements and will be a useful resource for policy makers, scholars, and the general public alike. The book places its valuable review and assessment of contemporary efforts to manage migration cooperatively in the context of the history, causes, and consequences of migration and is informed by the authors' deep knowledge and understanding of migration issues and first-hand experience 'on the ground.' -- Sharon Stanton Russell, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Managing international migration requires cooperation among sending, transit, and receiving countries. This valuable study shows that countries can cooperate successfully to manage one of the most complex international challenges of the 21st century. -- Brunson McKinley, Director General, International Organization for Migrationshow more
