International population migration has recently become a major topic of renewed interest to the global community. With the ending of the Cold War, many of the physical and political barriers to migration have fallen, and as international economic disparities have widened, the incentive for movement has grown. In many countries new legislative and administrative restrictions have been imposed on the immigration of economic migrants and refugees. Population Migration and the Changing World Order is a collection of 16 papers built around the theme of how global migration systems have been affected by recent geopolitical and geoeconomic changes. It contains general introductory and concluding overviews, and three sections that focus on movements within the Developed World, from the Third World to the Developed World, and within the Third World. These case study chapters draw on original research from a wide range of geographical areas, including Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and North America, and deal thematically with specific migrant categories, both in terms of origin and destination, workers and families, skilled and unskilled, refugees and school leavers, rich and poor. Overall, this collection offers a global perspective by geographers on a widespread phenomenon of growing concern and importance. It presents international migration in the 1990s not as a threat to economic and political stability but rather as an opportunity for migrants and states to react positively to the new and still changing world order.

A collection of essays by prominent population and development geographers addressing changes in the global order, especially in the aftermath of two major events--the Cold War's end and the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. The introductory overview contextualizes the transformations which are the substance of the empirical chapters, relating them to longer term trends in international migration during the second half of the 20th century and raising some analytical problems. Eight case studies review international migration within the Developed World and movements between the Third World and Developed World.
