Editorial Reviews


The World Bank Research Program on International Migration and Development has played a leading role in influencing policy-makers and development scholars to take a fresh look at the growing and important role of international migration in global development. This latest book from that program pushes the frontier of knowledge even further, demonstrating in a number of innovative studies that gender can no longer be thought of as a control variable, but as an important independent factor differentiating both the responsiveness of migration to global processes and the impact of migration within families and on the economies of sending and receiving countries. --Mark Rosenzweig, Frank Altschul Professor of International Economics, Department of Economics, Yale University
