‘International migration has traditionally been visualized as under the control (in both legal and practical terms) of the receiving country, with the role of the sending country a passive one. It now appears, however, that sending countries may have more control over outmigration than was previously thought and indeed may visualize it as a kind of “national resource,” to be managed like any other.’ Myron Weiner (quoted in Teitelbaum 1984 , 447
