Material type: TextTextPublisher: Singapore Springer Nature 2019Description: xviii, 370 p.: ill. Includes bibliographical referencesISBN: 9789811392238Subject(s): Migrant labor - India | Middle East - India | Emigration and immigration - Economic aspects | Foreign workers | Emigration and immigration | International relationsDDC classification: 331.620956 Summary: This book provides new insights and research studies on how developing countries come to terms with the nationalisation policies of Gulf economies that provide employment for their nationals. Focusing on regions and countries that have traditionally been overlooked, it includes studies on labour migration from Egypt to the Middle East and from the Philippines to Lebanon, migrant experiences and policy prospects in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon, and Indian migration to the Gulf. The book fills a critical gap in migration research by studying migration from various Indian states, such as Tamil Nadu, Telugu-speaking states (Telangana and Andhra Pradesh), Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. It also explores the unexpected phenomenon of demographic windows of economic opportunity (not documented in demographic literature) observed in a few Arab countries due to older migrant expatriates returning to their home country; the impact of international out-migration on intergenerational educational mobility among children in migrant-sending households in Kerala; and forced migration of Kerala Muslims to the Gulf. https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9789811392238
