Christina Gabriel and Hélène Pellerin, Governing International Labor Migrations: Current Issues, Challenges, and Dilemmas, London: Taylor & Francis, 2010.
Globalization comes in many forms. One of globalization’s more politicized manifestations is the global movement of labor. The book Governing International Labour Migration: Current Issues, Challenges, and Dilemmas outlines the complexities of governmental mechanisms and modalities that give meaning to the phenomenon of global migrant labor. As this volume demonstrates, international labor migration has received varying scholarly treatment, contextualizing it as both an issue of the nation-state and economic beliefs. This book provides much needed insight into labor migration philosophies, offering unique perspectives for the novice and expert alike.
