Migration And Poverty from the Author: Edmundo Murrugarra. This volume uses recent research from the World Bank to document and analyze the bidirectional relationship between poverty and migration in developing countries. The case studies chapters compiled in this book (from Tanzania, Nepal, Albania and Nicaragua), as well as the last, policy-oriented chapter illustrate the diversity of migration experience and tackle the complicated nexus between migration and poverty reduction. Two main messages emerge: Although evidence indicates that migration reduces poverty, it also shows that migration opportunities of the poor differ from that of the rest. In general, the evidence suggests that the poor either migrate less or migrate to low return destinations. As a consequence, many developing countries are not maximizing the poverty-reducing potential of migration. The main reason behind this outcome is difficulties in access to remunerative migration opportunities and the high costs associated with migrating. It is shown, for example, that reducing migration costs makes migration more pro-poor. The volume shows that developing countries governments are not without means to improve this situation. Several of the country examples offer a few policy recommendations towards this end.

Canadian Migration Patterns From Britain And North America from the Author: Barbara Jane Messamore. The character of Canada has always been defined by the successive waves of immigrants that have peopled its vastness, beginning with the six thousand French immigrants who came to settle New France in the latter half of the seventeenth century, and continuing through the present day. Migration and adaptation to a new country have also been prominent themes in Canadian literature, detailed in the works of such authors as Susanna Moodie and Robert Service. In this collection of essays, nineteen Canadianists take a new look at immigration and migration, and how it has affected the development of the country. Drawn from a number of papers presented at the 1998 conference on migration hosted by the Centre of Canadian Studies at the University of Edinburgh, the essays address various aspects of migration in Canada. They range from topics in the eighteenth century to the 1990s, and cover a range of disciplines including geography, economics, sociology, literature, and music. All the essays demonstrate how important immigration and ties to other parts of the world are to Canadians and to the Canadian identity, and how migration is a key issue in Canada's social, economic, political, and cultural life. By addressing aspects of the migration experience – from refugee policy to migration songs – the contributors to this collection have added greater depth and clarity to our understanding of the Canadian identity.

Global Migration from the Author: Elizabeth Mavroudi. Global Migration provides a clear, concise, and well-organized discussion of historical patterns and contemporary trends of migration, while guiding the readers through an often difficult and politicised topic. Aimed primarily at undergraduate and Master’s students, the text encourages the readers to reflect on economic processes, politics, immigrant lives and raises debates about inclusion, exclusion, and citizenship. The text critically highlights the global character of contemporary migration and the importance of historical context to current processes and emphasises the role of gender, race and national ideologies in shaping migration experiences. Using over a decade of their own insight into teaching undergraduate migration courses in the US and the UK, and the knowledge and understanding of the subject they have acquired as migration researchers, the authors offer an accessible and student-friendly manner for readers to understand and explore the complex issue of migration. The book features numerous international case studies, a chapter dedicated to the perspective of the immigrants themselves, as well as key terms and further readings at the end of each chapter. Both theoretically and empirically informed Global Migration examines the subject in a holistic and expansive way. It will equip students with an understanding of the complex issues of migration and serve as a guide for instructors in structuring their courses and in identifying important bodies of scholarly research on migration issues.

Migration And Residential Mobility from the Author: Martin T. Cadwallader. Designed both as a text for courses in population geography and migration and as a resource for planners working on migration issues, Migration and Residential Mobility studies the movement of people from region to region and within cities in such developed countries as the United States, Canada, England, and Sweden. Martin Cadwallader presents the major theoretical and empirical issues of the field, while describing and explaining various kinds of statistical models for migration. In particular, he uses structural equation models to specify the interrelations of variables that affect migration. He draws together concepts and methods from geography, economics, sociology, demography, and other fields, but provides a unifying geographical emphasis on the relationships among socioeconomic processes and spatial patterns. The book covers both macro and micro approaches to migration. The macro approach explains broad patterns of migration by measuring characteristics of the socioeconomic and physical environments, while the micro approach explains why individual people move, using a model of psychological decision-making processes. Cadwallader also makes a distinction between interregional migration and residential mobility within cities.
