Editorial Reviews

Three economists bring together a collection of contributions in order to gain a better understanding of the complex phenomenon of international migration in the context of urban and regional development. The 15 studies (most of which emerged from a December 1995 workshop on international migration) cover a variety of theoretical and applied work. Topics include theory and evidence: an economic perspective; spacial clusters: international patterns and linkages, as well as regional and urban patterns and assimilation; and migration models.
