This policy brief summarises the conclusion of a systematic comparison between the Mexico- US and Morocco-EU migration systems, conducted by IMI researchers. This comparison aimed at identifying the main factors explaining the persistence of migration as well as its varying impact on development. This policy brief was prepared in support of the project ‘Transatlantic dialogues on migration and development issues: Lessons from the Mexico-US and Morocco-EU experiences’ funded by the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF).
