In an increasingly globalized and interconnected world, migration has emerged as one of the central policy challenges of the future, fermenting debates on a national and international level. This book moves beyond the migration-development nexus by exploring the neglected issue of South-South migration, and its implications for social policy and development.This unique volume brings together leading experts from a wide variety of disciplines to examine the linkages and impact of migration on gender and care regimes, human resource flows, remittances, poverty, and political organizations by or for migrants. South-South Migration provides in-depth analysis illuminating the social policy perspective to global and regional debates on migration.This book is indispensable reading for all interested in development economics, macroeconomics, institutional economics, political economy, migration studies, gender studies and international relations.
