Abstract

This book aims at achieving a better understanding of the implications of international migration for national development from the perspective of the sending countries, with an emphasis on sub-Saharan Africa. More specifically, the volume explores (1) current perceptions of the links between international migration and national development, as seen from the perspective of the countries of origin, and (2) current trends in policymaking aimed at minimizing the negative effects of international migration, while optimizing its development impact. The book examines how a coherent international migration policy can contribute to the fight against poverty. Chapters are included on the migration-development nexus in Botswana, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria and Senegal. For comparative purposes, attention is additionally paid to Mexico, the Philippines and the People's Republic of China.
