Mobility: the selection of international migrants: the Canadian example
Keywords:mobility, migration, globalization, labor force, refugees, selection
The term “mobility” has been in vogue for more than twenty years. It values the increased circulation of the work force, of products, information, and capital, and proposes a new view of international migration. Migration is a normal, rational, and positive practice, epitomized by the foreign student, engineer, and day labourer. Migration policies since the 1990’s show another reality. We will describe and attempt to articulate these two new aspects of migration.
