Globalization, Migration and Ethnicity

  • Vic George

During the second half of the twentieth century, migration became truly global. Multi-ethnic immigrant communities from around the globe were firmly established in all AICs with important political, economic, social and cultural implications. As a result, migration has become a high profile political issue and, as globalization proceeds to include more fully all countries, migration and its effects will gain even greater prominence at both the national and the international level. As migration gains momentum, it will also become clearer that the current adversarial philosophy underlying migration movements is unhelpful and that a new approach is necessary — one that brings together sending and receiving countries in an effort to find solutions to migration issues that are to their mutual advantage.
