Manjula, Excellent piece, well written and straight to the point. I would emphasize a few issues on the overall storyline. 1. "Migration is development" to the extent that the decision to migrate, and the process of migration itself, has implicitly a strong element of freedom and a certain level of security. Difficult economic conditions can lead to migrate under very vulnerable circumstances to end up in a human trafficking chain. As someone else mentioned, this is another market where a number of actors may take advantage of their local power as monopsonists of labor or information monopolists. The design, piloting and implementation of low-skilled migration mechanisms need, more than in other skilled groups, a strong component of basic protection of rights.
