Abstract. Editors: EDWARDS, MICHAEL and GAVENTA, JOHN; Global Citizen Action; Reviewer: Ray Kiely; Editor: HARRISON, DAVID; Tourism and the Less Developed World Author: J. Atkin. Keywords: international labor migration, regional economic changes, East Asian develop-ment, Thailand, Taiwan * The first draft of this article was presented at the International Workshop on Labour Migration and Socio-Economic Change in Southeast and East Asia, organized by the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies and held at Lund, Sweden, in May. Government policies in the field of migration have been mainly reactive and regulatory. Similarly, research in the area of migration has been focussed primarily on the individual migrant and his individual family and surroundings. The main objective of this study was to develop a wider methodological approach which could analyse the phenomenon of migration within a macro-economic perspective.
