South Asia Migration Report 2017 : Recruitment, Remittances and Reintegration (Hardcover)
About this item
South Asians comprise over 15 per cent of all international migrating population, among the highest in the world. The countries of the Persian Gulf are perhaps still the largest recipients of migrant workers. A unique economy has developed between these two regions, with all South Asian nations being major beneficiaries and featuring among the top twenty countries receiving maximum remittances globally.
The South Asia Migration Report 2017 is the first of its kind, documenting migration profiles, diaspora, recruitment, and remittances both in individual countries as well as the South Asian region as a whole. It also discusses skilled, unskilled, and internal migrations.
- includes on-the-ground studies from 6 nations: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Afghanistan;
- discusses public policy, effects of global recession on the region and its impact on migration; and
- examines the process of reintegration of returning migrants.
This book will be indispensable for scholars and researchers of economics, development studies, migration and diaspora studies, labour studies, and sociology. It will also be useful to policymakers and government institutions working in the area.
