Abstract:

Migration has profound economic consequences ‐ many of them salutary, others more worrisome ‐ for migrants' home countries (see Katseli et al., 2006b). Potentially, migration can have positive effects on the development of sending countries. For example, migration can reduce unemployment, expand development through remittances, improve knowledge and skills, and introduce new technology. It can also, however, aggravate inequality, disrupt family life and social relations, and cripple essential social‐service provision. Hence, it is vital to link migration and development policies for more effective management of migration.
