Managing migration for development? : the promise of temporary worker schemes
Hogan, Alicia Paulina.
Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2008.; Includes bibliographical references. International labor migration is making a remarkable re-entry into the political agenda of leading multilateral and bilateral development organizations. Beginning in the early 21st century, the study of the existing linkages between migration and development has been promoted by a large number of international conferences and the creation of inter-agency bodies and commissions. Temporary work programs figure prominently as a way of promoting circular migration patterns which are considered key in reaping the development potential of international labor migration. This study examines the development understanding that informs temporary worker schemes. I focus on the extent to which they meet the conditions for the development and exercise of individual capabilities as the defining principle of human development.
