  1. Return Migration in the Asia Pacific

    Return Migration in the Asia Pacific

    Edited by Robyn Iredale, Fei Guo, Santi Rozario
    Globalisation and social transformation theorists have paid significantly less attention to the movement of people than they have to the movement of capital. This book redresses the balance and provides timely insights into recent developments in return skilled migration in four regions in the Asia Pacific – Bangladesh, China, Taiwan and Vietnam. The authors believe that the movement of skilled migrants, and the tacit knowledge they bring with them, is a vital component in the process of globalisation. Learn More

    Contemporary Minority Migration, Education and Ethnicity in China

    Robyn Iredale, Naren Bilik, Wang Su, Fei Guo, Caroline Hoy
    Rural–urban migration is an important aspect in the development of countries. Until the late 1980s China was one of the few countries that controlled population movement both directly and indirectly through policies of economic and social control. The gradual relaxation of these policies has resulted in greater freedom of movement for the population, the effects of which are discussed in this significant volume. Learn More
