The work focuses on the city in its spatial dimension, changing in time and interpreted as integrating other elements and dimensions. It is currently necessary to develop both research disciplines connected with urban morphology and typology, and a new approach to human perceptive abilities in the scale and spatial reality of a city. This work aims at determining essential relations between the legibility of the urban form and the conditions of orientation in the urban space. An investigative level, which is interdisciplinary by nature, concerns a question about human orientation abilities in the space in which they exist. This orientation reaches far into the culture, ordering values and meanings. Compatibility of the orientation, as defined above, in the urban space towards the legibility of the urban form is fundamental. The work features among others the following: - the concept of orientation codes of the urban form, - the notion of spatial orientation and the notion of orientation of the balance in the urban space as a criterion of urban form, - ranges of urban form legibility, - and determinants of form and perception, essential from the point of view of layout.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2011 in the subject Psychology - Miscellaneous, Saint Louis University, course: Time Orientation, language: English, abstract: Many psychologists agree that race is a socially created construct, used to categorize individuals into groups for social, political, and economical purposes. Despite its definitional ambiguity, race has a number of behavioral, affective, and cognitive implications within contemporary American society. This study seeks to provide evidence for the idea that the way that Black Americans view their racial group membership (racial ideology), is associated with how they view and organize time (time orientation). Thus, this study aims to investigate the relationship between racial ideology and time orientation. Furthermore, this study seeks to investigate the degree to which relationships between racial ideology and time orientation might be modified by self-construal.

This study analyzes the influence of inter-religious marriage and differing levels of church attendance within a married couple on migration behavior. We hypothesize that the propensity for migration is higher for inter-faith couples than for couples with the same religion and for couples who attend church at different frequencies. Largely, this research, as well as research on other differences between husbands and wives, indicates that inter-group married couples have higher migration rates than intra-groups couples. Data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth in 1979 was used to analyze the relationships between these aspects of religious identities and migration, and between church attendance and migration. Other determines utilized were age, education, and length of residence. Results actually show slightly lower migration odds for inter-group couples than for intra-group couples.

Puerto Rico is often left out of conversations on migration and transnationalism within the Latino context. Sponsored Migration: The State and Puerto Rican Postwar Migration to the United States by Edgardo Meléndez seeks to rectify this oversight, serving as a comprehensive study of the factors affecting Puerto Rican migration to the United States from the late 1940s to the 1960s. Examining the consequences of the perceived problem of Puerto Rican overpopulation as well as the cost of U.S. imperialism on the lives of Puerto Rican workers, Meléndez scrutinizes Puerto Rican migration in the postwar period as a microcosm of the political history of migration throughout Latin America. Sponsored Migration places Puerto Rico's migration policy in its historical context, examining the central role the Puerto Rican government played in encouraging and organizing migration during the postwar period. Meléndez sheds an important new light on the many ways in which the government intervened in the movement of its people: attempting to provide labor to U.S. agriculture, incorporating migrants into places like New York City, seeking to expand the island's air transportation infrastructure, and even promoting migration in the public school system. One of the first scholars to explore this topic in depth, Meléndez illuminates how migration influenced U.S. and Puerto Rican relations from 1898 onward.

The literature on migration realities in Europe is usually centered around the role played by the EU on member states' migration policies. In order to offer a comparative cross-country approach, previous research often allows too much to fall through the cracks. Facets of Migration in Contemporary Europe: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Specific Challenges directly addresses this issue. Through its multidisciplinary approach, it includes contributions ranging from policy-oriented chapters dedicated to the role of low-skilled and 'illegal' migrants to the securitization of migration in Europe as well as the role of Diasporas and language policies for the integration of migrants. The central theme of the volume is that experiences of migration in Western European countries can help the emerging countries of immigration in Central and Eastern Europe to improve their migration policies and living conditions.

International teacher migration has emerged as one of the key policy challenges confronting many countries in the world today. The aim of this research was to develop a strategy for managing teacher migration in Southern Africa. In this study, the author analysed the statistical scope of teacher migration in Southern Africa, its causes, effects, and management. The results of the study revealed that teacher migration statistics and data were generally patchy and incomplete in Southern Africa; that international teacher migration in the region was driven by three main structural causes; and that teacher migration had both positive and negative effects on the education systems of Southern African countries, migrant teachers and their families. The findings further revealed that improving the management of teacher migration in Southern Africa required a systematic and coordinated approach involving sending and receiving countries. In this regard, the author proffers key principles, guidelines and a model for managing teacher migration in the region. This publication is an important resource for policy makers, practitioners, scholars and ordinary readers.

The impact of international migration, both South-South as well as South-North, on the economic, social and political life of the people in Eastern and Southern Africa [was] not well documented and studied,- and 'the evidence-base for policy on migration and development [was] very weak.' With this in mind, OSSREA's invitation to conduct a study on international migration in Africa had the following objectives: To analyze the nature and type of South-South migration, focusing on issues, such as brain gain and/or brain drain, remittance flows, technical know-how transfers, violations of the right of African migrants and gender dimensions of migration; To investigate the dynamics of migration from Eastern and Southern Africa to the Arab Gulf States as well as to developed countries, focusing on the skills of migrants, brain gain and/or drain, remittance flows, technical know-how transfers, violations of the rights of African migrants and gender dimension of migrants; and to assess the successes, impediments and challenges of African international migrants from Eastern and Southern Africa and to formulate policy recommendations to maximize the gains and minimize the costs associated with international migration in Africa.

Migration and Diversity in Asian Contexts

3802 руб.
This volume makes an important and unique contribution to scholarly understandings of migration and diversity through its focus on Asian contexts. Current scholarship and literature on processes of migration and the consequences of diversity is heavily concentrated on Western contexts and their concerns with "multiculturalism", "integration", "rights and responsibilities", "social cohesion", "social inclusion", and "cosmopolitanism". In contrast, there has been relatively little attention given to migration and growing diversity in Asian contexts which are constituted by highly distinct and varied histories, cultures, geographies, and political economies.This book fills this significant gap in the literature on migration studies with a concentrated focus on communities, cities and countries in the Asian region that are experiencing increased levels of population mobility and subsequent diversity. Not only does it offer analyses of the policies and processes of migration, it also addresses the outcomes and implications of migration and diversity - these include a focus on multiculturalism and citizenship in the Asian region, the emerging complex forms of governance in response to increased diversity, discussions of different settlement experiences, and the practices of everyday life and encounters in increasingly diverse locales.

The Economics of International Migration is a collection of the fundamental articles written by Giovanni Peri on the economic determinants and consequences of international migration. These papers have provided the theoretical framework and empirical analysis for a rethinking of the economics of migration, going beyond the Canonical model of labor demand and supply used until the 1990s. Beginning with a simple model that recognizes the differences between immigrants and natives as workers, the articles develop the analysis of complementarity, specialization and productivity effect of immigrants in developed economies. The book then presents a series of papers analyzing and testing the economic motivation for international migration. Finally, the focus is shifted to the effect of immigration policies and their consequences on immigration and the economy.

"This book provides very rich material on long-term experiences of Arab migrants abroad and contributes to the literature on migration and Arab disasporas." · JRAIMost studies on transnational migration either stress assimilation, circulatory migration, or the negative impact of migration. This remarkable study, which covers migrants from one Jordanian village to 17 different countries in Europe, Asia, and North America, emphasizes the resiliency of transnational migrants after long periods of absence, social encapsulation, and stress, and their ability to construct social networks and reinterpret traditions in such a way as to mix the old and the new in a scenario that incorporates both worlds. Focusing on the humanistic aspects of the migration experience, this book examines questions such as birth control, women's work, retention of tribal law, and the changing attitudes of migrants towards themselves, their families, their home communities, and their nation. It ends with placing transnational migration from Jordan in a cross-cultural perspective by comparing it with similar processes elsewhere, and critically reviews a number of theoretical perspectives that have been used to explain migration.Richard T.

These regional essays are miniature masterpieces, and the authors demonstrate encyclopedic knowledge of their subjects. Overall, the book has a far higher degree of thematic coherence and development than most anthologies on global migration....Highly recommended." · ChoiceInternational migration is high on the public and political agenda of many countries, as the movement of people raises concerns while often eluding states' attempts at regulation. In this context, the 'Migration Without Borders' scenario challenges conventional views on the need to control and restrict migration flows and brings a fresh perspective to contemporary debates. This book explores the analytical issues raised by 'open borders', in terms of ethics, human rights, economic development, politics, social cohesion and welfare, and provides in-depth empirical investigations of how free movement is addressed and governed in Europe, Africa, the Americas and Asia. By introducing and discussing the possibility of a right to mobility, it calls for an opening, not only of national borders, but also of the eyes and minds of all those interested in the future of international migration in a globalising world.Antoine Pécoud holds a PhD in Social Anthropology from Oxford University and has been affilia...

This book covers the problem of process migration on grid computing environments. The rescheduling technique is useful for providing dynamic load rebalancing among the available resources. Good migration politics must be used for both improving resource utilization and minimizing the application execution time. Besides discussions about load balancing and scheduling, this book presents a rescheduling model called MigBSP which controls the process migration on Bulk-Synchronous Parallel (BSP) applications. The BSP model was adopted because round-based computations represent a common style for written successfully parallel programs. MigBSP answers the following questions regarding process migration: a) When to launch the rescheduling; b) Which are the candidates for migration; c) Where to put the elected processes for migration. These questions are solved by determining the Potential of Migration (PM) of each process. PM represents the differential idea of MigBSP and combines data from Computation, Communication and Memory metrics. The results show performance improvements in the application time and affirm the migration mechanism as a key technique for platforms like grids.

The book provides an analysis of the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in traditionally patriarchal societies in three Western Balkan countries: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia. The study focuses on the household unit and examines the positions of women with and without migration experience in their families. Research findings suggest that the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in three selected dimensions (socio-cultural, economic and domestic decision making) depends crucially on the personal ability of each individual woman to consider the migration experience in light of the complex interface of socio-economic factors in both home and host countries.

There are vast swathes of people in economic migration across the Gulf states today. In total, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar form the largest destination for labour migration in the global South. This book studies the impact of this mass migration, and its effect on citizenship and workers' rights.Transit States considers how the transitory labour power these workers provide creates an extraordinary development boom that impacts neighbouring countries. The majority of the working population is therefore composed of migrant workers with no citizenship rights. The Gulf takes a central place in growing debates around migration and labour in the global economy. Transit States confronts the precarious working conditions of migrants in an accessible, yet in-depth manner.

With the increasing worldwide problems of migration, research into its causes and effects become every more urgent. This volume takes stock of recent advancements that social science research in both Europe and the United States has made to understanding central aspects of international migration. The focus is on conceptual, methodological, and theoretical contributions that have emerged out of empirical research with regard to state policies and interests toward migration, dual citizenship, incorporation, transnational ties, entrepreneurship, illegal migration, intergenerational incorporation, and religion. No other publication brings the scholarship together in a similarly comprehensive manner, showing how the different approaches on each continent complement and speak to one another, thus contributing to the internationalization of migration studies.Alejandro Portes is Howard Harrison and Gabrielle Snyder Beck Professor of Sociology and director of the Center for Migration and Development at Princeton University. His current research is on the adaptation process of the immigrant second generation and the rise of transnational immigrant communities in the United States.
