Redistribution  (REDISTRIBUTION)

Migration policy1 is one aspect of population policy. Most countries, through their immigration laws2, restrict the admittance of foreign nationals. These Jaws frequently provide for selective immigration3 of persons with certain specified characteristics. Some countries, the United States for example, have established quota systems4 whereby the number of immigrants admitted from each country is fixed in relation to the national origin5 of the receiving country’s inhabitants. Measures designed to influence the redistribution6 of population within a country through internal migration (802-5) are usually more indirect in character.
