Abstract

The focus of the volume is the interweaving of the two themes of migration and development. The importance of migrants for their countries of origin has always been the subject of debates since the 1960s. In the German-speaking world, a survey of the subject complex is still to be expected. This book will fill this book: as a clear introduction with simultaneous theoretical and empirical diversity. This should be of relevance both for the scientific specialist audience and for students as well as for decision-makers in development cooperation. The context of migration and development raises the fundamental question of what is meant by "development". How can ideas of migrants as dynamic actors of economic globalization be reconciled with human rights-based ideas? Are the national states, or nationally thought-out societies, at all sensible reference points to problematize the developmental aspects of migration? Is international migration different from domestic migration in its developmental aspects? And how does migration affect (ine) equality in a local, national and global dimension? "Migration and development" is not only a central development policy issue, but also increasingly important in the context of migration policy discussions, especially at a European level. But can a control-oriented migration policy and a "migration management" guided by strong economic interests be combined with the claim to social and regional balance and the overcoming of global inequality? Or is the use of developmental aspects by the immigration states merely to conceal the "dark side" of the migration policy, which consists in the construction of border regimes with technically complex monitoring and a sophisticated practice of deportation? The band wants to provide answers to these questions.
