An authoritative and myth-busting analysis that tells us why we're wrong about migration Global migration is not at an all-time high. The climate emergency will not lead to mass migration. Border restrictions have actually produced more migration. These statements might sound counterintuitive, or just outright wrong - but the facts behind the headlines reveal a different story to the ones we're often told. In this ground-breaking book, based on over three decades of research, migration expert Professor Hein de Haas destroys the myths that politicians, interest groups and media regularly spread about immigration. Comparing trends and perspectives from Western 'destination countries' (UK, US and Europe) as well as 'origin countries' in Asia, Africa and Latin America, de Haas shows migration not as a problem to be solved, nor as a solution to a problem, but as it really is. How Migration Really Works will offer an essential new vision of migration based on facts rather than fears, and a paradigm-altering understanding of this perennially important subject.
