Migration Policy Practice (Vol. XII, Number 1, February 2023)

Migration Policy Practice (MPP) focuses on policy-oriented research and analysis, with the aim to contribute to a better understanding of the multidimensional aspects of migration and inform migration policies at the national, regional and international levels. The new editors (Marie McAuliffe, IOM; Charles Kwenin, University of Ghana; Richa Arora, German Agency for International Cooperation GmbH (GIZ)) span the boundaries of migration scholarship, migration policy and migration practice with decades of experience in the field, including across diverse geographic and geopolitical settings. Articles in this issue highlight the gendered impacts of migration, analyse the migration patterns of international students and address migration and mobility related to environmental change.
