India Migration Report 2016 discusses migration to the Persian Gulf region. This volume:

  • looks at contemporary labour recruitment and policy, both in India and in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries;
  • explores gender issues in migration to Gulf countries; and
  • brings together the latest field data on migrants across states in India.

Part of the prestigious annual series, this volume will interest scholars and researchers of economics, development studies, migration and diaspora studies, labour studies, and sociology. It will also be useful to policymakers and government institutions working in the area.
