Editorial: Migration: International and Intranational Dimensions
AbstractMigration is an important issue for several reasons. First, it affects the size and composition of the population of the areas of origin and destination, thus comprising a fundamental element of the demographic, social, cultural, and economic structure of the nation and its regions. Second, migration embodies skill flows and thus has significant repercussions for economic performance. Finally, migration has been a main factor to be considered for carrying out a series of social programs, such as the federal-local transfer payments in developed countries. This special volume of Geography Research Forum is devoted to an examination of issues relating to immigration, international labor migration, and internal migration within the context of the strengthening global economy. The volume consists of seven papers. The contributors are leading or experienced researchers in the area of migration.
