Labor Mobility free pdf With the rise of attention paid to the subject of migrant workers in the Gulf and controversy surrounding the conditions in which these migrants work and live, labor mobility has become a significant aspect of GCC economic development. The region is host to around 15 million expatriate workers who generate around $80 billion in annual remittances each year and support an estimated 150 million dependents in their various home countries. This book provides a variety of approaches to the subject of labor mobility as an enabler for human, economic and social development. It explores migration policy and governance in the GCC states, the potential for research collaboration between migrant-sending and -receiving countries. Containing research concerning the relationship between remittances and economic cycles in home and host countries and the implications of labor mobility for families and households, this book offers vital research for those in economic development and the study of labor in the Middle East.
