International labour migration is an inevitable truth in the present globalizing world. It involves the movement of individuals from and/or out of their countries of origin to foreign nations. There is manifest tension between exploitation of labour migrants at international and local levels and the commitment on the part of the state to safeguard their interests. The government needs to regulate migration and reconcile the interests at variance. There should be a deliberate attempt to formulate administrative guidelines to guide this process.
This study will identify pertinent issues around management of transnational and/or cross border remunerable labour as well as propose policy guidelines to manage the issues. This study will explore the state of international labour migration and its resultant effects at the local level largely focusing on the connection between development and migration particularly, institutional and structural features that unite the two.
The study advances the import of international labour migration in the modern economic and social dispensation and suggests a policy framework for improved administration of remunerable activities within and out of territorial boundaries. The study will project international labour migration as one of the strategies to livelihood in view of the scope of resources for the growing population.
