Economic impact of migration to the Middle East on the major Asian labour sending countries - an overview
AbstractGovernment policies in the field of migration have been mainly reactive and regulatory. Similarly, research in the area of migration has been focussed primarily on the individual migrant and his individual family and surroundings. The main objective of this study was to develop a wider methodological approach which could analyse the phenomenon of migration within a macro-economic perspective where the impact on the economy and the society as a whole could be identified. The overview builds-up this framework and draws on the main conclusions of the country studies presented in this volume.
