Social Security and Migrant Workers: Selected Studies of Cross-Border Social Security Mechanisms
February 25, 2014
From the publisher:
It is well known that migration law often imposes restrictions which severely influence entitlement and access to social security benefits for migrant workers. However, in the wake of new social problems created by economic globalization, new patterns of migration, and political pressures… an increasing number of countries today have entered into bilateral and multilateral social security agreements with a basis in human rights… In the overarching context of labour immigration and the formal state social security framework, eighteen noted academics and policy advisors focus on ‘new solutions in a globalizing world’. There are discussions of important regional initiatives in Latin America, Africa and Europe, and special chapters on distinctive far-reaching developments in Costa Rica, the Philippines and India. Furthermore, attention is paid to social security relations entered into by two developed states… Australia and the Netherlands.
