Migration decision making: a review essay.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A critique of the book entitled Migration decision making by De Jong and Gardner, which explores the migration habits of single individuals and families in developing countries. In particular, the tendency of rural urban migration is considered and described. Also addresses the issue of specific policy making measures in relation to demographic behaviour. A major focus is the importance of considering the family unit rather than the individual alone in the question of migration.-from WAERSA
