Editors: Md. Mizanur Rahman (National University of Singapore (NUS) and AKM Ahsan Ullah (American University in Cairo.CMRS., Ne Cairo, Egypt)
Book Description:
This book includes chapters that investigate the development of international migration policy in major emigrant countries in Asia; and that in today’s highly mobile world, migration has become an increasingly complex area of governance, inextricably interlinked with other key policy areas including economic and social development, national security, human rights, public health regional stability and inter-country cooperation. Role of institutions in facilitating or de-facilitating migration, the potential impact of environmental degradation on population displacement are key contents of the book. This book recommends that migration policy be aligned in a way so as to incorporate migrants’ rights. Migrants, wherever they move on and whatever their status is must not be stripped of their human rights. Due to the fact that migrants, especially female migrants are more vulnerable at the destination point to multiple abuses than at their original location, migration policy has to take this into account.
