‘Migration and globalization’ shows how international migration is an important dimension of globalization. Growing developmental, demographic, and democratic disparities provide powerful incentives to move and the segmentation of labour markets in richer countries is creating increasing demand for migrant workers there. Migration has been facilitated by revolutions in communications and transport; the development of migration networks; and the establishment of rights and entitlements for migrant workers. The growth of a migration industry adds further momentum to international migration, even where it is not officially permitted. There are more reasons and additional means to migrate than ever before.
