As the global economy stands on a precipice, the focus of policy debates is shifting increasingly towards the shape and sustainability of recovery. However the pressing issue of migration and its governance has not yet been addressed, despite the fact that the recession has been driving changes in world labour markets and migration practices - changes that can seriously influence social peace, interstate relations and the impact of global economic recovery.

 

In this volume, Bimal Ghosh analyses the ramifications and dynamics of the crisis on labour markets and migration patterns, and contends that the urgent need for joint action could well open up new opportunities for closer interstate cooperation, and serve as a stepping stone towards the establishment of a common international framework for improving the governance of human mobility.
