Autores:
John WILLOUGHBY
Resumen:

This essay explores the contradictions unleashed by the heavy reliance of Gulf Arab countries on South Asian expatriate labor.

Liberalization, Migration and Development: the Mexico-U.S. Relationship
Revista:
14 - 2006
Autores:
Migration, Development, Liberalization

Proponents of liberalization had maintained that it would reduce migration; indeed, they used this argument along with anti-immigrant sentiment as one basis on which to sell the North American Free Trade Agreement to the U.S. public. The anti-immigration demagogy was not only offensive in sentiment but also wrong in substance.
