Reviews

"This volume alerts us to cross-border labour movement in different regions in the world and highlights the legal and political factors that underpin socioeconomic dynamics in this domain." - Virginie Guiraudon, Sciences Po Paris, France

"This Handbook is an outstanding contribution to the study of international labour migration. It combines a high degree of analysis with very good case studies of labour migration in different parts of the world. Regions often neglected are included and the political and human rights dimensions are well analyzed. It is an indispensible tool for scholars of migration." - Zig Layton-Henry, University of Warwick, UK

"A global approach to migration at the heart of present questions." - Catherine de Wenden, Sciences Po Paris, France
