Raghuram, Parvati (2007). Conceptualising Indian emigration: The development story. In: van Naerssen, Ton; Spaan, Ernst and Zoomers, Annelies eds. Global Migration and Development. Routledge Studies in Development and Society. Abingdon, UK: Routledge, pp. 309–326.



About the book:
The debate on international migration and development currently focuses on South-North migration, transnationalism, remittances and knowledge transfer. The potential positive role of migration for countries and regions the emigrants originate from has recently been acknowledged by, among others, the World Bank, United Nations Commissions and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM). This volume addresses the question: to what extent and under what conditions does international migration contribute to local and national development? By presenting novel insights and themes on the basis of new empirical evidence from various countries, this volume is an indispensable addition to the international discussion on migration.
