Description

Published in Association with UNESCO "Each essay provides a detailed, well-written overview of the historical development and demographic growth of international migration in the region. These regional essays are miniature masterpieces, and the authors demonstrate encyclopedic knowledge of their subjects. Overall, the book has a far higher degree of thematic coherence and development than most anthologies on global migration...Highly recommended." * Choice International migration is high on the public and political agenda of many countries, as the movement of people raises concerns while often eluding states' attempts at regulation. In this context, the 'Migration Without Borders' scenario challenges conventional views on the need to control and restrict migration flows and brings a fresh perspective to contemporary debates. This book explores the analytical issues raised by 'open borders', in terms of ethics, human rights, economic development, politics, social cohesion and welfare, and provides in-depth empirical investigations of how free movement is addressed and governed in Europe, Africa, the Americas and Asia. By introducing and discussing the possibility of a right to mobility, it calls for an opening, not only of national borders, but also of the eyes and minds of all those interested in the future of international migration in a globalising world. Antoine Pecoud holds a PhD in Social Anthropology from Oxford University and has been affiliated to different research centers in the UK, Germany, and France. He now works for UNESCO's section on International Migration. Paul de Guchteneire is the Chief of UNESCO's Section on International Migration. He was previously director of the Steinmetz Archive for social science data in the Netherlands and President of the International Federation of Data Organizations.
