New waves of migration: are developing countries ready?

15:00 CET,  Paris

Migration needs to take a front seat in development agenda’s moving forward. Migration boosts the number of people of working-age in a country, helps to fill shortages and diversifies economies, which can encourage more trade and investment. Yet, global development agendas have, up-to-this-point, failed to adequately integrate the role of human mobility into country strategies for growth and wellbeing.

Can developing countries turn the tide and take full advantage of the new waves of migration as a driver of development?

This #DevTalks is being held in the framework of OECD Development Centre’s 60th Anniversary Dialogues (#DEVat60)
