Lecture held by Prof. Ronald Skeldon.

The lecture will begin by looking at the main global flows of migration and place these in their demographic context. It will consider whether migration is ever increasing and if other significant patterns are emerging. The lecture will then consider the nexus of migration and development. It will assess the role of the three main dimensions of the debate: remittances, skilled migration (and brain drain) and diaspora. The policies that are thought to optimize the developmental impact of migration will be examined and the lecture will conclude by raising a new dimension in the debate: migration as a threat to the development of the state.
