Bringing migration into the post‐2015 agenda : notes, reflections and policy directions


  • Skeldon R.



Migration was not an explicit goal of the Millennium Development Goals MDGs, rightly so in this writers view, but it was indirectly an integral part of achieving many, if not all, of the goals themselves. As we move towards the end of the MDG period in 2015, it is worth reflecting upon what will follow, and if and how migration should be incorporated into what is to follow. Two dimensions are central to such a discussion first, the nature of the development goals post2015; second, how migration might fit into these goals. These notes and reflections will conclude with a possible policy direction that just might provide a path towards integrating migration into development.
