Over the next few decades, global migration is likely to play an influential role in shaping the nature of politics and economies internationally. This timely study illuminates possible implications of migrant flows from a development perspective. The authors survey the magnitude of the poor to rich-country flows, the rich-country policies that are driving them, and the multiple channels through which skilled migration affects development. They provide a rich discussion of the policy options, as they search for those that avoid the worst losses to poor countries while maintaining the most liberal feasible international migration regime.

"Long considered a botique issue, both for research and for policy, international migration has now become a hot topic. Kapur and McHale have written a splendid book that focuses on the growing flows of the skilled and their consequences for development. It should become a classic in the field." —Jagdish Bhagwati, Columbia University and the Council on Foreign Relations
"...a stimulating book." —Clyde Sanger, The Economist, University Affairs, 3/1/2006
"Devesh Kapur and John McHale have produced an exciting and insightful overview of the global market for talent. This area does not lend itself to simple solutions, but any policymaker grappling with 'brain drain' issues will find a wealth of ideas and analytical tools between these covers. This book will remain an important source for many years." —Alan Winters, Development Research Group, World Bank
"This is a terrific piece of work that will put a much negelected issue on the agenda. At a time when aid, trade, and debt relief are getting all the attention, Kapur and McHale provide excellent analysis and imaginative policy recommendations, making a convincing case that development effects of rich-country migration policies should be getting much more attention." —Dani Rodrik, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
