MetadataShow full item record
In contrast to other sources of population change, international migration has certain features which make it unique in policy terms; policies dealing with the flow or stock of migrants require policy decisions by at least two governments. Attempts by any one government to influence its own nationals to emigrate or to attract immigrants will be constrained by national and international legal obligations, as well as by the policies and national interest of other governments. International migration flows, being more responsive than either fertility or mortality to short-run changes in the socio-economic environment, affect the growth and structure of the labor force more immediately (Scrageldin, 1983: 217}.
