The authors of this book seek to answer why the Gulf is the foremost desintation for labour migration in the Global South. Yet how and why the majority of the working population is composed of itinerant migrant workers with no citizenship rights.
Bringing together experts on the Gulf, as well as putting forth reliable data, this book explores the issues around Gulf labour and migration and confronts the real conditions of migrant workers. This book shows exactly why the Gulf should be at the centre of contemporary debates around global migration and labour laws.
