Migration as a Driver of Economic Development. Cooperation Policies and Strategies between Origin and Destination Countries.

ICID, in collaboration with Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca, Università degli Studi di Milano, and Centro Studi Luca d'Agliano, organizes a one-day workshop on the links between migration and development, and the crucial role of policies and strategies linking origin and destination countries.

Migration flows are a ‘bridge’ across different societies and create tangible links between origin and destination countries. Active economic development policies can influence the deep-rooted causes of migration and expand the opportunities generated by international migrants in countries of destination. This calls for a long-term global vision of immigration along with an effective cooperation strategy with countries of origin.

"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.
