International Migration: The well-being of migrants
Migration has been a widely discussed and debated issue in recent years while events in Africa and the Arab world have caused migration on a huge scale and pushed the subject close to the top of the political agenda. Globalisation, climate change and demographic developments in the West provide a backdrop to the current discourses and policies on migration. There is a conflict between humanitarian impulses and protectionism. Recent decades have seen an increase in research and writing, in the UK and internationally, on the different aspects of migration. The increase in numbers and diversity of migrants is recognised as posing significant challenges and opportunities for social and public policies. Simultaneously the policy landscape on migrants entitlements to public services, as well as notions of social protection. are in a state of flux in the context of the adoption of austerity policies across the European Union and beyond. These trends have significant implications on access to services generally, including health and social care services. Philomena de Lima provides a contemporary understanding of migrants and migration processes and trends. She reviews the conceptual and theoretical discourses on integration and citizenship rights with a particular focus on issues related to migrants access to services, including health and social care services. The book will inform and educate social science students, policy-makers and those wrestling on a practical level with the implications of migration.
