Migration and Development: How to make migration work for poverty reduction

This report produced by the UK Parliament illustrates how governments and organisations can make migration work for the poor. It looks at the opportunities for improving the quality of migration, and ways in which policy can shape and respond to migration to make it work better for development and poverty reduction. The report argues that the impact of migration depends upon the nature of the migration, and on the links which migration establishes between home and host societies. It looks at issues including brain drain, trafficking and smuggling, migrants' rights, temporary mobility schemes, and the role of the Diaspora. http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmintdev/79/79.pdf
