(p.144) 6 Cross-border Movements of People
Governing Globalization

Deepak Nayyar

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines cross-border movements of people so as to outline the contours, examine the underlying factors, analyse the implications of globalisation, explore future prospects, and consider issues and problems of governance. It sketches a profile of international labour migration over the past fifty years and situates it in an historical perspective to highlight the contrast between the old and the new. It also draws a distinction between different categories of labour flows in the contemporary world economy. It then examines the underlying factors with an emphasis on structural determinants at the macrolevel. It also attempts to explain why the gathering momentum of globalisation has coincided with a discernible slowdown in migration during the last quarter of the 20th century, to analyse how globalisation might influence emigration pressures on the supply side and immigration needs on the demand side.

Keywords:   cross-border movements, globalisation, problems of governance, international labour migration, labour flows, world economy, structural determinants, emigration, immigration
