Workshop "The Italian Agency for Development Cooperation: continuity and new strategies"

The workshop, organized by ICID, aimed at discussing the role and perspectives of the newly created Italian Agency for Development Cooperation with the director of the Agency, Mrs Laura Frigenti, the dean of the University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’, Prof. Giuseppe Novelli, and selected panelists from a variety of academic institutions.

"Moving upstream the “relevant” migration frontier. Strategic priorities to turn the migration challenge into a development opportunity"

Laura Frigenti* and Furio C. Rosati**

Migration is one of the most pressing issues on the international political agenda. Despite its current immediate emergency, however, migration is the result of long-term factors and very likely to last for many decades ahead. This calls for a new and more integrated approach to international migration, deeply rooted in sound empirical evidence of the complex dynamics driving people global mobility and emphasizing the key role of countries of origin as the centre of gravity of current and future migration policies and interventions to turn the migration challenge into a development opportunity for both origin and destination economies.
