The Migration-Development Nexus Revisited: State of the Art and Ways Ahead
University of Trento, June 8-10,
The migration-development nexus is increasingly in the forefront of debate, both in academic research and in the international discourses and policies of states, international organisations and NGOs. However, despite the plethora of publications and case studies, fuelled also by a widespread political demand for relevant knowledge, the “firm points” within this debate are still relatively few. Moreover, systematic elaborations and comparative analyses are still quite infrequent. Yet, by elaborating on the migration-development nexus – having said of its centrality, symbolical at least, to public policies – one can shed light on a range of major issues in migration studies. These include the interaction between migration policies in the contexts of origin and destination, along with the influence of non-state actors on them; the kinds, frequency and varieties of remittances originated from migrants’ efforts to achieve better opportunities abroad; the impact of emigration on the economic, political and socio-cultural arrangements in home societies; the effects of migration on gender, generational and family relationships, as well as the scope to reproduce and negotiate them in a transnational arena.
