Enhancing the development impact of migration
Migration is a phenomenon that reflects economic, social and demographic imbalances across countries and requires a multi-disciplinary approach to understand and manage. This paper offers some observations on the complex issue of the development impact of migration. It will do so by commenting on three broad questions. First, how and in what ways is migration important for development? Second, what are the costs and benefits of migration for developing and developed countries? And finally, what are the strategic choices that countries – both receiving and sending – are facing, and what do we know and not know on how to advise them?
