The lack of references in support of the statements in the text is somewhat surprising. In view of the popular interest in the topic, it is also surprising that little is said about the effects of migration upon the transmitting and receiving communities. Surely the extensive studies of those topics deserve further mention in the text? Nick Gardner 16:48, 30 January 2008 (CST)

Well, I suppose it is up to me to address this. Basically, the article needs to be restructured, maybe subpages used, and sections on economic issues relating to emigration and imnmigration added, along with economic develop[ment issues. I have just finished teaching a Masters course I devised on the political economy of international migration, so I have all the standard stuff to hand. Yet another thing for my "To Do" list :-( Any ideas on how to restructure this would be useful, though. Offers gladly accepted:-)Martin Baldwin-Edwards 18:55, 30 January 2008 (CST)
I wrote the article and basically followed the Weeks textbook, and added my own material on ethnicity. The long bibliog is my own. I don't see any controversial parts--but if there is a problematic statement somewhere, please identify it and it can be fixed. I agree with Martin that new sections should be added and hope he does so,

Terms needed elsewhere

Martin (and others), I started putting definitions I needed for international relations and U.S. politics under Related Articles. Refugee and IDP were adapted from UNHCR. I'd certainly prefer as unemotional terms as possible for the US immigration debates. Changes or suggestions welcome. --Howard C. Berkowitz 19:54, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
