This compelling volume examines changes to immigration flows and policy during the global economic crisis in the late 2000's. A series of analyses of countries and regions explores to what extent the crisis has affected migrant decisions, migration outcomes, and national policies. Authors also look at what the long-term effects may be on protection of migrants, support for immigration, labour markets, and the need for foreign workers. Finally, contributors consider whether changes are likely to be fleeting or enduring and whether these changes fundamentally transform the way we think of migration flows and the role of migration policies.
