How Migration Can Benefit Development

Eds. Kristof Tamas and Joakim Palme 2006

Institutet för Framtidsstudiers skriftserie: Framtidens samhälle nr 5, 2006

Migration can make positive contributions to the economic development of poor countries, but needs to be incorporated into the national development strategies more systematically. This can only be achieved through an extensive cooperation nationally, regionally and globally. More funding is needed for research on the positive and negative effects of migration on the economic development in poor countries. A dialogue on migration and development is taking place on the highest level in the UN general council in mid-September 2006. This anthology has been developed as a contribution to that discussion. The book has four chapters written by experts from different parts of the world - Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Central- and South America. The authors put forth concrete measures for how the research capacity could be strengthened and how the cooperation between experts and decision-makers could be improved. The book is a result of the third Stockholm seminar in the series: Global Migration Regimes. Table of Content
