Migration and the family

Migration and the family

Occasional Papers Series International Year of the Family, United Nations ( 12): 37 pp.

This paper explores some aspects of the role of the family in the population movement as well as the influence of migration upon changing patterns of family structure and functioning. While families have undergone massive changes in both developing and developed countries, the major focus is upon developing countries, where, it could be argued, changes in both family and migration patterns have been more substantial and more profound in their impact than those in developed countries.
