M4D Library

 

The repository collected over more than six years represents a joint effort of the M4D Net Facilitation Team and the M4D Net members to make available to the wider community the latest findings in the field of migration and development with a view to filling potential knowledge gaps and move the migration and development agenda forward through evidence-based research.

The e-Library is searchable by keyword, document type, thematic area, focus area and year of publication. Being a member of the M4D Net Community also allows you to upload documentation that you wish to share with others through the e-Library.

While European countries struggle to manage the recent influx of refugees and migrants, a quieter trend has been occurring: large numbers of talented residents leaving. Deeply familiar to low- and middle-income countries, the phenomenon of "brain drain"—the loss of precious human capital to opportunities elsewhere—has recently become a concern in parts of Europe, including some high-income countries still trying to find their footing after the economic shocks of 2008 and the ensuing fiscal crisis.

Increasingly, municipalities are acting as autonomous partners for just and sustainable development worldwide.

Yet they are also doing it because they are assuming responsibility for globally sustainable development, to which they can contribute their own specific expertise. The Local Agenda 21 and the Millennium Development Goals – as well as the Post-2015 Agenda – form the framework in which this is taking place. As competent actors who are...

International engagement is reinforced by the overall increase in importance of the local level in development cooperation, as reflected for instance in the Report on Local Authorities and Development Cooperation published by the European Parliament in 2007.
