The ‘migration-development’ nexus has emerged as an important area of both research and policy over the last ten years. However, most of the interest has focused on the potential migration holds for poverty alleviation, and relatively little attention has been paid to the relationship between migration and inequality, particularly on inequality as a consequence of migration.
This collection, from an international set of contributors, explores the relationship between migration and inequality in Africa, Asia and Latin America by taking into account both internal and cross-border migration. Inequality is emerging as a key area of inquiry within development studies, and migration is not only a product of inequality, but it also holds a great potential for disrupting unequal social structures. This book explores both national and international mobility, and explores both economic and social inequalities, and includes case studies on low-income as well as high-skilled migrants, challenging the overwhelming focus in development studies on the poor. The book assesses the impact of migration on structures of caste, gender and class, and offers both empirical evidence and theoretical understandings on the relationship between migration and inequality
