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.

We live in a world which is becoming increasingly urban. Over 54 per cent of people across the globe were living in urban areas in 2014. The current urban population of 3.9 billion is expected to grow to some 6.4 billion by 2050. Migration is driving much of the increase in urbanization, making cities much more diverse places in which to live. Nearly one in five of all migrants live in the world’s top 20 largest cities. In many of these cities migrants represent over a third or more of the population. Other cities have seen a remarkable growth in migration in recent years. In Asia and Africa...

  Recent migration research emphasizes the development potential of migration in both sending and receiving countries.

Abstract: Whether Europe will be able to stand up to its internal and external challenges crucially depends on its ability to manage its internal mobility and inflows of international migrants. Using a unique expert opinion survey, we document that Europe needs skilled migrants, and skill mismatch is to be expected. A review of current immigration policies shows that despite a number of positive recent developments Europe lacks a consistent strategy to address this challenge effectively, paralyzed by the notion of “fortress” Europe, which we argue should be abandoned. Since significant...
