Children on the move by International Organization For Migration( )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Millions of children are on the move, both within and between countries, with or without their parents. The conditions under which movement takes place are often treacherous, putting migrant children, especially unaccompanied and separated children, at an increased risk of economic or sexual exploitation, abuse, neglect and violence. Policy responses to protect and support these migrant children are often fragmented and inconsistent and while children on the move have become a recognised part of today's global and mixed migration flows they are still largely invisible in debates on both child protection and migration
World migration report 2013 : migrant well-being and development( )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Migration Report 2013 contributes to the global debate on migration and development in three ways: First, the focus of the report is on the migrant, and on how migration affects a person s well-being. Many reports on migration and development focus on the impact of remittances: the money that migrants send back home. This report takes a different approach, exploring how migration affects a person s quality of life and their human development across a broad range of dimensions. Second, the report draws upon the findings of a unique source of data the Gallup World Poll surveys, conducted in more than 150 countries, to assess the well-being of migrants worldwide for the first time. Third, the report sheds new light on how migrants rate their lives, whether they live in a highincome country in the North, or a low or middle income country in the South. Traditionally the focus has been on those migrating from lower income countries to more affluent ones; this report considers movements in all four migration pathways and their implications for development i.e. migration from the South to North, between countries of the South or between countries of the North, as well as movements from the North to the South

Trade and migration : building bridges for global labour mobility( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Expectations are running high for significant outcomes on the temporary movement of natural persons to supply services - known as mode 4 - in the current WTO services negotiations. Powerful drivers for liberalisation exist, such as increased trade and investment, strengthened global business networks, shortage of skills in developed countries, and increasing export capacity in skilled labour in developing countries. However, stumbling blocks remain. What is the impact of temporary movement on domestic labour markets in developed countries? Does mode 4 contribute to "brain drain" in developing countries? And what are the links between mode 4 and the sensitive issue of how countries regulate the entry of foreigners into their territory?" "Building on a recent OECD/IOM/World Bank seminar, Trade and Migration considers these questions and examines the opportunities and challenges in the current debate as they relate to mode 4 and the current WTO services negotiations. The book explores possible ways forward for building greater understanding between the trade and migration policy communities on this important and timely issue. It suggests ways to unleash the potential of the temporary movement of service suppliers to bring significant gains to developed and developing countries alike."--Jacket

Huddled masses and uncertain shores : insights into irregular migration by Bimal Ghosh( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irregular migration, or inter-country movements that take place in defiance of national laws and regulations, is not new. But over the past few years such movements, especially in the form of human trafficking, [including the trafficking of women and children] have seen an unprecedented increase just as they have become closely linked to international crime and violence.

Migrant trafficking and human smuggling in Europe : a review of the evidence with case studies from Hungary, Poland and Ukraine by International Organization for Migration( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is concern in Europe about the rising scale of migrant trafficking and human smuggling, much of which is via Central and Eastern European countries. Despite the increase in the number of such cases and the vast media interest, there has been relatively little systematic research on these subjects. This report presents results of research on trafficking in Central and Eastern Europe, and a systematic review of existing studies and research on migrant trafficking and human smuggling in Europe
The migration-development nexus by Ninna Nyberg Sørensen( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A synthesis of current knowledge of migration-development dynamics, including an assessment of the intended and unintended consequences of development and humanitarian policy interventions. Section 1 examines whether recent developments in the sphere of international migration provide evidence of a 'crisis', as well as the connections between migration, globalisation and the changing nature of conflict. Section 2 summarizes current thinking on the main issues at stake. Section 3 examines available evidence on the relations between migration and development. Section 4 discusses the consequent challenges to the aid community, including the current debates about coherence and selectivity in aid and relief. The final section elaborates on the four conclusions of

This second volume of the biennial IOM World Migration Report Series approaches migration management and the migration process in a comprehensive manner and seeks to demonstrate that migration, when properly managed, is positive for both individuals and societies. It illustrates the complex linkages of migration with economic, social, labour, trade, health and security policy areas and highlights rights and obligations of migrants and states. The Report also addresses the sensitive issues of identity, social change and cultural adaptation and emphasizes the importance of international cooperation and partnerships

Is trafficking in human beings demand driven? : a multi-country pilot study by Bridget Anderson( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research paper reveals the findings of a multi-country pilot study carried out to investigate the demand side related to the trafficking of human beings. It focuses on employer demand for domestic workers in private homes and consumer demand for commercial sexual services in selected European and Asian countries. In both sex and domestic work, the absence of effective regulation is one of the factors that help to create an environment in which it is possible and profitable to use forced labour
Migration and climate change by Oli Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report focuses on the possible future scenarios for climate change, natural disasters and migration and development, looking to increase awareness and find answers to the challenges that lie ahead. The report states that even though it is defined as a growing crisis, the consequences of climate change for human population are unclear and unpredictable . In 1990, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) noted that the greatest single impact of climate change could be on human migration, with millions of persons displaced by shoreline erosion, coastal flooding and agricultural disruption. Since then, various analysts have tried to put numbers on these flows of climate migrants, the most widely repeated prediction being 200 million by 2050. The study points out that the scientific basis for climate change is increasingly well established, and confirms that current predictions as to the "carrying capacity" in large parts of the world will be compromised by climate change.--Publisher's description

Living across worlds : diaspora, development and transnational engagement( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research presented in this volume is based on case studies from around the world to examine how migration influences development. The studies reveal that it is seldom the simple act of migrating, but rather the conditions under which migration takes place that determine the developmental impact of migration. Rather than dwelling on normative discussions about whether migration should contribute to development, whether remittances should be put to more developmental uses, whether return should be promoted or whether development cooperation should engage in collaborative efforts with migrant and refugee diasporas, the chapters focus on the questions policymakers and practitioners should consider when making background analyses for such decisions.--Publisher's description
