QUOTEInevitably, international migration is poised to be one of the biggest challenges to, and also opportunities for, world development in the twenty-first century. This volume greatly enhances our understanding of its causes and consequences and should help us to think of better policies, by both developed and developing countries, to manage this critical phenomenon. QUOTE-Ernesto Zedillio Director, Yale Center for the Study of Globalization Former President of Mexico QUOTEThis volume is very timely, offering an invaluable view of the World Bank's ongoing research program on the links between international migration and economic development at a stage when this subject is receiving considerable global attention. QUOTE- Robert E. B. Lucas Professor of Economics, Boston University International migration, the movement of people across international boundaries, has enormous economic, social and cultural implications in both origin and destination countries. Using original research, this title examines the determinants of migration, the impact of remittances and migration on poverty, welfare, and investment decisions, and the consequences of brain drain, brain gain, and brain waste.
