Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Many African migrants residing abroad nurture a hope to one day return, at least temporarily, to their home country. In the wake of economic crises in the developed world, alongside rapid economic growth in parts of Africa, the impetus to return is likely to increase. Such returnees are often portrayed as agents of development, bringing with them capital, knowledge and skills as well as connections and experience gained abroad. Yet, the reality is altogether more complex. In this much-needed volume, based on extensive original fieldwork, the authors reveal that there is all too often a gaping divide between abstract policy assumptions and migrants actual practices. In contrast to the prevailing optimism of policies on migration and development, Africa s Return Migrants demonstrates that the capital obtained abroad is not always advantageous and that it can even hamper successful entrepreneurship and other forms of economic, political and social engagement.

Synopsis :

Many African migrants residing abroad nurture a hope to one day return, at least temporarily, to their home country. In the wake of economic crises in the developed world, alongside rapid economic growth in parts of Africa, the impetus to ?return? is likely to increase. Such returnees are often portrayed as agents of development, bringing with them capital, knowledge and skills as well as connections and experience gained abroad. Yet, the reality is altogether more complex.

In this much-needed volume, based on extensive original fieldwork, the authors reveal that there is all too often a gaping divide between abstract policy assumptions and migrants? actual practices. In contrast to the prevailing optimism of policies on migration and development, Africa?s Return Migrants demonstrates that the capital obtained abroad is not always advantageous and that it can even hamper successful entrepreneurship and other forms of economic, political and social engagement.

Critique:

'Can Africans who return from the diaspora play the role of development agents? Are they willing to? And would it be welcomed by the Africans who never left? The seven authors tackle such questions with a combination of ethnographic nuance and political critique. A refreshing contribution to debates on migration and development!'
Jørgen Carling, research professor, Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO)

'Much recent policy discourse hails return migrants as "agents of development" while neglecting the experiences of those very migrants. This astute volume provides a powerful corrective, challenging received wisdom through empirically-rich case studies of return migrants and the challenges they face.'
Neil Carrier, African Studies Centre, University of Oxford

'This excellent book turns the spotlight on returnees in Africa, who - whether they are businessmen, development agents, or indeed children - have profound impacts on their home countries.'
Richard Black, SOAS, University of London

'These case studies from a wide range of African countries provide invaluable comparative evidence of the diverse experiences and complex meanings hidden behind the apparently simple idea of "return".'
Ben Page, Migration Research Unit, University College London

'This engaging and timely book provides an important intervention into debates about diaspora and development. A must-read for students of African development, migration and diaspora studies.'
Claire Mercer, London School of Economics and Political Science, and co-author of Development and the African Diaspora

'Policies seeking to court return migration, their reintegration, and their constructive engagement in the development of home communities will find the incisive research findings of this book highly pragmatic.'
Aderanti Adepoju, coordinator, Network of Migration Research on Africa

Description du livre Zed Books Ltd. Hardback. État : new. BRAND NEW, Africa's Return Migrants: The New Developers?, Lisa Akesson, Maria Eriksson Baaz, Many African migrants who reside abroad nurture a hope to one day return, either permanently or on a more temporary basis. In the wake of economic crises in much of the developed world, alongside rapid economic growth in parts of Africa, the impetus to 'return' is likely to increase the coming years. Such returnees are often portrayed as 'agents of development' who will bring with them economic capital, knowledge and skills as well as social connections and experience gained in a 'developed North'. Yet, the reality is altogether more complex. In this original and much-needed volume, based on extensive original fieldwork, the authors reveal there is all-too-often a gaping mismatch between abstract policy assumptions and migrants' actual practices. In contrast to the prevailing optimism in policies on migration and development, Africa's Return Migrants demonstrates that the capital obtained abroad is not always advantageous and that it sometimes even hampers successful entrepreneurship and other forms of economic, political and social engagement.
