War Disaster and Outmigration

Covering the three decades since the Socialist Republic first opened its economy to the world, this book examines the development of the Sri Lankan overseas migration economy over this period, placing it in the context of the country's economic, social and political development. In examining the connections between governmental-sponsored overseas employment programs and extreme environmental and political conditions (e.g., tsunamis, armed conflict), this book argues that poverty is not the sole, or principal, factor to induce migration. Consequently, while providing an in-depth study of Sri Lanka, it also contributes to the larger debates of population, politics and the environment.
