Migration and Development - The Role for Development Aid

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Sep 12, 2019 | Migration Studies Delegation, Stockholm, Robert Lucas

Nearly forty percent of the world’s international migrants are estimated to be in the developing countries, with almost half of these in the Low and Lower-Middle Income states. In this research review by Migration Studies Delegation, Stockholm, Robert Lucas describes the magnitudes and composition of international migration and remittance flows, and summarises the effects of migration on economic development. He concludes that much of the impact on poverty alleviation and growth depends on the setting - the skill-levels of migrants, investments in infrastructure and education in developing countries and impediments to rural-urban migration.
