About the product

Issues related to international migration now confront policymakers throughout the world. There have been few comparative studies of national policy evaluation approaches, methodologies and implementation mechanisms, and very little analysis on how much countries are actually spending on migration programmes. The study is very timely as it describes and compares the ways in which some of the major immigration countries in the world and some key international bodies assess the costs and impacts of their migration policies and programmes. An innovative feature of the publication is its comparison of government spending on migration programmes.
