Out now: Handbook on#Migration and #Development

Handbook MigDev CoverA new handbook on migration and development has been published. The volume has been edited by Tanja Bastia and Ronald Skeldon who have brought together an impressive collection of 55 chapters, examining the manifold connections between the two areas. The topics of the contributions include gender, diasporas, families and social policies and, particular relevant for the scope of this blog, a whole section on “Polices, Rights and Interventions”. Not surprisingly, the 600 page book comes at a rather heavy price, but at least a  20 percent discount is available with this flyer:

Flyer – HB of Migration and Development

My own contribution has the title “Global civil society, migration and development
The chapter starts with a discussion of the meaning and scope of civil Society and maps out which forms civil society engagement can take with regards to the issue of migration and development. The next section looks at how development is viewed, framed and advocated among a variety of actors within global migrant civil society. The conclusion discusses the question of the role of civil society.
Case studies focus in particular on the Philippines s well as on the GFMD for the global level.
