When Borders Don’t Divide: Labor Migration and Refugee Movements in the Americas
Edited by Patricia R. Pessar
This text features nine new studies on inter-American labor migration and refugee movements. Authored by a distinguished group of Latin American and Caribbean scholars, the studies examine major international migration trends in these regions. The collection brings new voices into the debate on migration. Several of the studies in this collection challenge the popular view that migration is a product of underdevelopment in labor-exporting countries. The authors counter with the controversial claim that labor migration is a product of regional development and interdependence.
