New centres of economic growth have the potential to significantly affect international migration. They may slowdown emigration from these countries as well as favour returns of migrants in their origin country. In turn, these changing patterns of mobility – in addition to having significant economic, social and environmental implications – will introduce new challenges and opportunities for economies and people’s livelihoods in both origin and destination countries. The session will aim to broaden our perspectives on migration as an engine of development and open a discussion over a range of possible policy actions.
ECDPM’s Anna Knoll will make a presentation.
