|Title:||Thematic Introduction: Migration Challenges in the Asia Pacific Region in the Twenty-First Century||Contributor(s):||Kaur, Amarjit (author); Metcalfe, Ian (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5383||Abstract:||Trans-Asian labour migration, a defining feature of Asian globalisation prior to 1940, comprised mainly Chinese and Indian emigration to Southeast Asia and was quantitatively and qualitatively as significant as European transatlantic migration. Although migrant workers were regarded as sojourners, they established diasporic communities across the region, particularly in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. After the Second World War and problems of decolonisation, unskilled labour migration came to a halt.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Journal in the Asia-Pacific Region, 9(2), p. 131-134||Publisher:||UNESCO||Place of Publication:||Paris, France||ISSN:||1817-4574||Field of Research (FOR):||160303 Migration||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||940399 International Relations not elsewhere classified||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0015/001584/158473E.pdf#page=3||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 172|
