The Price of Rights: Regulating International Labor Migration

The Price of Rights: Regulating International Labor Migration

Migrant workers, particularly those classified as “low-skilled,” find that the denial of their rights is the “price of admission” to labor immigration programs. This is the global phenomenon described and analyzed by Martin Ruhs in The Price of Rights: Regulating International Labor Migration.  This book review provides an in-depth discussion of Ruhs’s comprehensive study of labor immigration policies and the substantial questions it raises for the global migration debate.
