International Migration and Development: Indians in the Persian Gulf

Abstract

As countries with great wealth, low populations, and labor shortages, the Gulf states rely heavily on imported labor to fuel the development process. They do not allow migrants to become citizens. This article examines the social, economic, and political effects of this strategy of development by exploring the role of Indians, who, with Pakistanis, form the largest group of migrants to the Gulf states. The apparent impermanence of migration to the Gulf states (reflected in receiving and sending country policies and in the migrants' attitudes and behavior) is illusory, it is argued. Such fundamental structural changes have taken place in the economies and labor markets of the region that non-nationals are an enduring part of the labor force.
