Prof. Natasha Iskander writes 'Creative State' - new book on migration & development
Assistant Professor of Public Policy Natasha Iskander just published a new book called Creative State: Forty Years of Migration and Development Policy in Morocco and Mexico.
At the turn of the 21st century, governments around the world began searching for ways to capitalize on emigration for economic growth, and they looked to nations that already had policies in place. Morocco and Mexico featured prominently as sources of “best practices” in this area.
In Creative State, Professor Iskander chronicles how these innovative policies emerged and evolved over 40 years and reveals how neither the governments nor their migrant constituencies ever predicted the ways the initiatives would fundamentally redefine nationhood, development and citizenship.
