Time to Temper the Faith: Comparing the Migration and Development Experiences of Mexico and Morocco

With about 10 per cent of Moroccan and Mexican citizens living abroad, remittances have become a vital source of income and poverty alleviation for both countries.

Hein de Haas and Simona Vezzoli explore how migration has affected development and ways to reframe the migration-development debate. This article showcases research that builds upon IMI's previous work, the Bellagio Dialogue on Migration (a month-long project in 2006 which explored migration and development challenges).

Visit Transatlantic Dialogues on Migration and Development Issues for more information about the research project which gave rise to this article.
