Image Is Not AvailableThis book is a 2008 publication of the Institute for Social Development Studies and the The Gioi Publisher. The two main authors of this book are Le Bach Duong and Khuat Thu Hong. This book has 262 pages and available in English and Vietnamese.
The book is based on the ISDS’s data resource that cover ten years of the following issues: the lack of social protection for the rural migrants who come to the urban areas to find work at the “labor market” or in the informal economic sector; the health impacts of migration; the risks related to international labor migration; and the situation of transnational human trafficking.
The main contents of the book address the issues of migration and social protection, especially after the Doi Moi was introduced in Viet Nam. High flow of migration has become a challenge to the policy makers in their efforts to strengthen the economic growth and maintain the social stability at the same time. According to the authors team, because of the common attitude that look at migration as a negative impact toward the development process, the lack of policies and programs that protect the disadvantaged group have limited the government in dealing with such challenges.
The book includes seven chapters. After the introduction, the second chapter offers a review of national and international literatures on the impacts of political economic changes toward migration in Viet Nam throughout the history. Chapter III discusses the fundamental changes that the shifting process of the market reformation have created the risks and vulnerabilities to certain social groups. Chapter IV focuses on the relationship between migration and health from different angles in the economic reformation. Chapter V introduces the risks and vulnerabilities of the Vietnamese labor migrants in Taiwan. Chapter VI analyzes the situations that cause poor women from Vietnam to migrate to China to find jobs and get married to Chinese men. The last chapter gives conclusions on the main challenges that migration pose to the policy makers and implementers in their efforts to balance the economic growth and social stability.
