The blogger on ‘Short Sharp Science’ quotes from an interview with Lant Pritchett at the John F Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University about migration regulation.
Pritchett says that

‘the current ever-tougher controls on migration into the rich world are the new apartheid of a globalised world economy – locking up poor people in prison-camp countries not so different from the hated Bantustans or “black African homelands” of apartheid-era South Africa’.
