Jorge Martínez Pizarro, of the Latin American and Caribbean Demographic Centre (CELADE), reviews International Migration: Prospects and Policies in a Global Market. The book deals with policies in sending countries, such as remittances, exportation of workers, and return migration. The author also highlights receiving countries’ policies, such as admission, asylum, and integration. The text focuses on the increase in worldwide migration, the wide differences in development between sending and receiving countries, and the increasing diversity in origins and destinations due to transportation improvements. Feminization of migration and increasing number of female migrants are also topics addressed in the book.
