Explores the conceptual underpinnings beneath the factors affecting current migration waves, their development impact on source and receiving countries, and the historical contexts under which various migration experiences have taken place. Discusses understanding the trends, themes, and strata of international migration; why people move or stay put--whether international migration is the result of compelling and conflicting factors; what happens when international migration happens; how empires, policy regimes, and economic imperatives influenced the mobility of capital and people in the twentieth century; Latin America--where volatile economic development, political crises, poverty, and remittance income is a laboratory for studying the determinants of international migration; who migrates and what they offer--a focus on people and elites with talent, knowledge, and entrepreneurial skills; and whether a fair and orderly international migration process requires a global social contract. Solimano is Founder and President of the International Center for Globalization and Development in Santiago. Index.
