International Migration

Graziano Battistella

Oxford University Press

Return migration is a fixed component of temporary labour migration currently organized in Asia. However, as the experience of the Philippines indicates, policies for the reintegration of returning migrants are often difficult to implement and yield poor results. Return should be part of the planning before departure, and policies should focus on providing information, facilitating access to credit, maximizing the use of remittances, favouring local initiatives, and fostering cooperative enterprises. As for other aspects, policies for returning migrants should be part of a cooperative approach to migration between countries of origin and of destination.
