International labour migration determinants, process and impact: the case of Egypt 1973-1987

Analyse: This thesis deals with the problem of temporary labour migration, a phenomenon that has appeared specially after the second world war. Inside the academic community exists a division concerning the positive and negative aspects of this phenomenon
This difference of views extends, as well, to the governments either in the labour receiving or labour sending countries. This study focuses on the problem of temporary labour migration in the sending countries and its effects on these societies taking Egypt as a case study
In order to achieve this objective, the study is composed of three elements: the determinants of labour emigration which includes the factors that lead to generate potential emigrants and the mechanism of labour transfer to the receiving countries
The institutional framework of labour emigration in the sending countries and its impact on the process of migration
The impact of labour emigration on the sending country with special focus on the relationship between labour emigration and employment
