$43.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Chinedum Uzoma Nwajiuba, Bertram E.B. Nwoke and Chinyere Augusta Nwajiuba argue from the Nigerian case that international migration is economically induced. Specifically, the introduction of structural adjustment programmes in the mid-1980s in Nigeria and much of sub-Saharan Africa, with its severe negative consequences for livelihood, is the major stimulant for migration away from sub-Saharan Africa and into the more developed and economically stable economies of the OECD. They discuss the public health implications of migration, as well as some unintended negative consequences for family life and stability.Development (2007) 50, 101–105. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100436
