About this lecture
This lecture will examine where the debate on migration and development has come from and where it might be going, taking account of both academic and policy approaches. The mantra of evidence-based policy will be set against interpretations and information drawn from the migration and development debate, with specific examples taken from remittances, skilled migration and diasporas. The role of current international institutions in the proposed management of migration will be considered as well as speculations made on their future.
