Book

The political economy of international labour migration: a case study of Pakistani workers in Gulf states

Date

1995

Authors

Hassan Nawaz Gardezi

Abstract

While former studies on labor migration have concentrated on its effect on GNP, foreign exchange earnings, and labour exporting countries' rates of investment, Gardezi's work refocuses attention on the migrant workers themselves, their hopes and aspirations, family and community life, and working conditions both at home and abroad.
Taking this wide-ranging view, he is able to enhance our understanding of the transfers of labour force.
