This ground-breaking report examines a wide range of migration’s impacts on development, based on primary research in seven countries across six continents.
This report presents the main findings from the major global research project, Development on the Move: Measuring and Optimising Migration’s Economic and Social Impacts, carried out between 2006 and 2010 by the Global Development Network (GDN) and the Institute for Public Policy Research (ippr).
The project aimed to develop better methodologies for assessing migration’s impacts; improve the evidence base; analyse policy impacts and options; build research capacity on migration, and promote multi-disciplinary analysis. In doing so it contributes to answering the question as to whether, on balance, migration helps or hinders international development.
The findings provide fresh and thought-provoking insights for policymakers and researchers alike.
'This is truly a landmark study and creates a fascinating new standard on migration research.'
Prof Lant Pritchett, Professor of the Practice of Economic Development, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
'This study will, in my view, change the world.'
Rt Hon Philip Woolas, Former Minister of State for Border and Immigration, UK Home Office
