Migration and Those Left Behind
This collection of studies considers the impact of migration in the Global South on those who do not migrate: children, partners, and families left behind; sending communities; and national economies.
In so doing, it speaks to continuing research ad policy discussions on the 'migration-development nexus' and the role of migrants and migrant networks as development agents. While South-South migration today exceeds South-North migration much of the related literature has dealt with the latter.
In focusing on migration within the Global South, including movement s within as well as between countries, the present collection offers new targeted consideration of southern migration in these processes. The studies in this collection draw on a variety of cases, including focused consideration of evidence from Ghana, South Africa, Ethiopia, Morocco, Indonesia, Egypt, Jordan, and Tunisia.
