Worker Displacement in the US/Mexico Border Region provides a comprehensive analysis of the social and economic impact of worker displacement in border communities. The contributors – experts from a variety of fields – evaluate the consequences of displacement on individuals, families and communities from various interdisciplinary perspectives. Issues that arise as a result of job displacement, such as health, training and education, are explored in-depth.

The US/Mexico border region is one of the poorest areas of the United States. As such, it is of great interest to those looking for approaches that can be adopted to help this and similar populations reduce their poverty. The book provides a rich picture of the policy challenges involved in addressing the needs of border communities. Also examined is the role of, and effects on, the US economy.

This volume will be of particular interest to students, researchers and policymakers concerned with gaining a better understanding of the health, training and education needs of the US/Mexico border population. Anyone interested in international trade, economics, labor or migration will find the interdisciplinary nature of the book appealing.
Critical Acclaim
‘An interesting, interrelated mixture of descriptive and empirical analyses, case studies, and theoretical modeling that relates to a timely and important issue that is of considerable policy interest. . . The book reads well and is accessible without a high degree of technical ability. It would be of interest to most researchers focusing on job displacement and would be appropriate even at the advanced undergraduate level.’
– Roger White, Labor Studies Journal
