How right are the migration policies? We need to align with the Future
The subject of migration has always generated a lot of controversies. From those who solicit for more borders to be opened to those who want more border fences to be built, as well as the proponents of the benefits and dangers of migrants, migration has always been a front burner topic.
International migration happens to be a sensitive topic in both poor and rich countries. The country where the migrant is coming from and where they are going usually have varying perspectives about the topic. The camps have divided opinion on the issue. For instance, some people feel it is a good way to bring in people who will fill the gaps existing in the domestic labour market, but others have a contrary opinion that it could negatively affect the domestic workforce. Opinions equally differ between the people who talk of international migration advantages concerning sending countries via remittances, better trade & investment relationships, and the people who warn of the adverse effect of migration of local capacity within sending nations.
At a period when the supposed positive effect of migration on economic stability, poverty reduction, as well as walfare seem to be undergoing more scrutiny in developing and developed countries, it is only appropriate to evaluate these arguments beyond the surface, so as to ensure the correct migration policies are put in place. And also how NGO’s and other stakeholders rather than governments contribute more for providing economic and social welfare have still been an issue to discuss. Interestingly, there seem to be proofs that immigration, and diversity are drivers of economic prosperity. Traditionally, a huge part of all the resources that have discussed the growth impacts of immigration seem to have concentrated on impact on labor market: migration effects on aggregrate employment, native labour market outcome, working age population ratio, any many others. To fully understand the positive impacts that come with migration, one needs to understand all these channels at the same time.
The market intended and readership (primary and secondary) for the book
It will be a project that will benefit academics, as well as other audiences since it emphasizes empirical operations of Government policymakers, NGOs, academics, business organizations, undergraduate & post-graduate student, with more breakdown of conceptual and empirical clarifications of cruical definitions. This particular book adds up information gotten from different social science endeavors – economics, business, politics, sociology, and education – to improve the management of labor migration, how it continues to be important even when unemployment and economic crisis is on the increase. Labour migration is determined by other factors. Since other nations seek to have better policies, this book’s editors have spoken with other researchers globally.
Authors and readers of international publications and postgraduate programs will find this work as a helpful tool within and beyond the boundaries of the US. Making it more unique, this book provides a common ground for different work of literature in law, regional studies, economy of health migration, political science, International Relation and area study in nations such as USA, Turkey, UK, and other world experts, readers and students might see it as intellectually fulfilling and educative as well. İt can be up for reviews in International Migration, International Migration Journal, International Migration Review, Migration Affair Journal, Ethnic & Migration Studies Journal, Migration & health Journal, etc.
Due to how important these issues are we have decided to do a publication of these studies, touching on the world and future migration.
A list of the main competing books
Thus, immigration is one factor that still shapes many households and communities. In classrooms, neighborhoods, and workplaces in many places nationwide, daily discussions among native born, new and old immigrants is usual, and such interactions create a broader perspective of immigration.
Immigration is always happening, so we are looking at it constantly. And with the variations existing in economic opportunities and demographic trends that occur across the globe, this will likely continue. The number of arrivals go ahead to affect where we learn, work, live, education, economy, job, federal budget deficit, and healthcare. As such, immigration is all about a broad list of economic and social questions that will affect the future of the nation.
Economic research having to do with migration phenomena is more than studying how immigrant impact the wages of native and cause unemployment. İn the labour world, economists have looked at immigrant and native interactions, how they vary in terms of complementaries and substitutions, and how firms, native workers, and domestic economies can respond to the labour supply changes that usually occasion the arrival of immigrant workers. Researchers have equally moved their focus to other possible outcome in host communities where immigrants might be impactful, which includes educational choices, public finances, heathcare and health, residential decisions, crime, as well as price of housing. The determining factors of economic and social integration of foreigners in host nations have been critically looked into as well.
The focus on sending communities and countries have also grown over time. What differentiates internal from international migration within developing countries? How does it affect the migrants, as well as their loved ones? How do migration, along with other human capital outflows and remittance inflows add to economic and social development in the sending societies? What is the return migration’s role? Are there any global benefits of migration? These are a few of the many questions economists are trying to address.
Also, economists have tried evaluating migration policies, as well as quantitatively assessing how they affect movement of immigrant workers, and how they impact both sending & receiving countries. The policymaking process regarding immigration has equally been questioned heavily lately. What is changing voters’ attitude concerning immigration, and how such preferrences are further reflected in the decisions of policymakers? How do immigrants influence the outcomes of elections in hosting communities? Does exposing immigrants to better democratic regimes within hosting communities influence the electoral happenings in the home areas?
You would find all this exciting research inside this book. A collaboration of the best hands in this field, this book provides a summary the views of sociologists, economists, law makers, and policy makers regarding migration as it concerns policymaking, while exposing every relevant question that are yet to be answered.
