Migration has become a critical issue of our times in both transnational politics and the domestic politics of countries of the North and the South. The book considers the complexities of migration in Southeast Asia from multiple perspectives. At the macro level, these complexities include the economic drivers of migration, the impact of increased environmental disasters and the impact on the movement of people and the challenges encountered, gender as an enduring but adaptive process in the discourse on migration, and the limitation of state-centric approaches while recognizing the central role the State continues to play. At the micro level, these include how decisions to migrate are made at the individual and household levels; for example, family members or individuals choosing to undertake migration for the purposes of enhancing opportunities for work and status in life offers both opportunities and risks to present and future prospects. In considering the many aspects of migrants’ risks, rights, protections and opportunities, and how they interact with social and environmental vulnerabilities, the book aims to identify important new trends, unfolding dynamics and key concerns, and propose workable approaches to their redress.
