    Migration and Development: Have we got it right?

    This news is redirected by The Secretariat for Development Cooperation at SCIENCE from FAU - The Association of Development Researchers in Denmark. Migration is a key issue in Denmark’s development strategy, and significantly influences the way the media and the Danish development community approach and debate a number of other issues – such as conflict, fragility and poverty. Two key assumptions are that (i) development cooperation can help address the root causes of migration, and that (ii) this is important to do for the welfare of all. What if these assumptions are wrong? Some research-based evidence suggests that, in the shorter term, economic development may in fact lead to more migration. It also suggests that migration is good for development in the countries of origin. This raises a number of questions: Does it mean that development cooperation is wasting its time by focusing on migration – and perhaps even doing more bad than good?  Or is this an erroneous conclusion, which ignores that migration may also lead to much hardship and loss of life? And what does the difference between so-called economic migration and forced displacement mean in this respect? The seminar will discuss what research actually tells us on the relationship between migration and development, and what the implications are for development policy and practice. Admission is free, but registration is required. For registration send us an email (fau.msc@cbs.dk) with your name and institution/workplace. Registration deadline: December 8 at 12:00 am. » Read more
