About this book


Drawing on case-studies from the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia, International Migration and Sending Countries demonstrates how sending countries are emerging as complex and significant actors in migration politics. It shows how a more nuanced understanding of sending countries' policies towards their emigrants and diasporas is relevant for both academic and public policy debates on issues of migration control and development. In addition, wider issues are considered such as the implications of migrants' cross-border membership, dual allegiances and transnational practices, together with the scope and powers of the state in a period of globalization.
