This book examines the role played by the state and private sector in organizing labor migration and the economic and social issues raised by such migration policies and programs. It explores the question of whether, and how, migrant workers should be controlled and regulated to safeguard the interests of the sending state without infringing the basic rights of the individual. Drawing on the experience of several countries, Abella illustrates the key elements of migration programs and suggests principles and concepts that could be used to reconcile some of the inherent conflicts among policy goals.
