International Migration and Sending Countries offers a comparative study of the policies of sending countries (and homelands) towards their nationals abroad. Detailed case studies from the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia demonstrate how international migration provides sending countries with new options for reconfiguring the reach of the nation-state through transnational economic, social and political ties with nationals abroad. The book shows how a more nuanced understanding of sending countries' policies towards their emigrants and diasporas is relevant for both academic and public policy debates on issues of migration control and development as well as the wider issues and implications of migrants' cross-border membership, dual allegiances and transnational practices and the scope and powers of the state in a period of globalization.
