Latest news from Migration Policy Institute

As Europe copes with surge of crossings in Mediterranean, new report argues far deeper insight is needed into migrant decision-making and smuggler business model

The report, Before the boat: Understanding the migrant journey, makes the case that policymakers are making decisions ‘while in the dark’ about the decision-making process and the assessment of risk that migrants face at every step of the journey. They also lack detailed insight about the business model of the smuggling networks that are delivering often desperate people to Europe’s doorstep in exchange for significant remuneration, argue authors Jacob Townsend and Christel Oomen of Farsight, a Brussels-based social enterprise with a focus on migration that has organised interviews with thousands of migrants and would-be migrants.

The Before the boat report can be read at: www.migrationpolicy.org/research/boat-understanding-migrant-journey.

Generally high-skilled and highly educated, more than half of Indian immigrants have arrived since 2000 and largely attain green cards through employment-based pathways. Indians account for 70 percent of H-1B petitions and are the second-largest group of international students in the United States.

New publications are available at the Scout Report!

PRISM: Political & Rights Issues & Social Movements

Florida Atlantic University and the University of Central Florida have teamed up to gather a range of pamphlets and other materials concerning socialist, communist, and leftist views on a host of topics, from Marxist economics to world pacifism to anti-colonialism. The digitized collection features authors from the United States, the former USSR, India, Korea, and other countries, with archival material written primarily in the late 19th and early to mid 20th centuries. Readers may like to select Browse the Collection to begin. This will pull up nearly 2,000 documents, which can then be sorted by Title, Creator, Subject, and Date. The documents may also be searched by selecting Refine, and then using the Search Text box. Amazingly, historical documents such as “Woman’s place in the fight for a better world,” a 1947 publication from Elizabeth Gurley Flynn of the Communist Party of the United States of America, can be downloaded in PDF format.

From Humanitarian to Economic: The Changing Face of Vietnamese Migration

The end of the Vietnam war, marked by the fall of Saigon in 1975, precipitated the mass Indochinese refugee crisis, which saw more than 2 million people flee the region, often on unseaworthy boats. Following the war, Vietnamese migration was divided between humanitarian flows to the West, and labor migrants to allied communist countries. More recently, Vietnam’s rapid economic growth has prompted increased labor migration to Asia and a rise in migrant brides.
