International migration is an ubiquitous reality in the Gulf States where foreign citizens are a majority in the workforce as well as in several states’ total population. Migration is instrumental in Gulf nations’ prosperity and at the same time regarded a challenge to their identity. At the other end of the journey, for many countries of origin in South Asia, the Arab world and East Africa, migration to the Gulf is an integral part of the daily lives of tens of millions and a constitutive element of economies and societies. This book is about policies designed to regulate migration and protect the migrants and enable them to contribute to the prosperity of the Gulf and the development of their home countries.
