The added value brought by migrants should be considered as a potentially accelerating rather than a driving force for development in origin countries. This insight and others relating to the position and responsibility of governments came out of a recent study tour organised by the International Migration Institute (IMI). The tour was part of the ‘Transatlantic Dialogues’ project, which compares Mexico-US and Morocco-EU migration systems and migration and development issues, and looks at the role played by migrants in development and the impacts of migrants’ interventions.
