Managing migration for whose benefit? The global impacts of UK migration policies.

Abstract

This presentation asks how policies could shape developmental outcomes, or how can migration policies be made more development-friendly. Can migration be 'mainstreamed' into policy concerns? Is it possible to convince the public of the benefits of migration? It is argued that 'managing' migration must take into account all the actors and interests that such policies would touch on, including sending/transit/receiving and secondary countries, migrants themselves, diaspora groups etc.
