Overview

The global migration potential in the world towards the higher developed areas has been estimated to be about 80
to 100 million people. Most of them would like to move permanently. It is expected that the numbers will further grow in the medium-term future. Normally, the issue of migrationis linked to the issue of economic development.
Economists, demographers andsociologists, among other social scientists have made only limitated effortsto understand the causes and consequences of migration and to provide the basis for an appropriate policy-making.
The book collects eight contributions to the relevant issues involved: Migration in a rational framework of decision making; the performance of migrants; how they affect the sending countries; rural-urban migration in developing countries. The options for migration policy are also considered. The book discusses newmethods to model these problems, provides new empirical findings and gives policy recommendations. It should be of value to economists,
demographers and sociologists.
