Situation Analysis of Migration Context and Policy Framework in Bangladesh

This Situation Analysis provides an overview of the migration context and policy framework relating to internal and international migration in Bangladesh. It provides a snap shot of the research already undertaken and identifies research gaps that need to be addressed to better understand the development and migration nexus highlighted in this report. The report is divided into four thematic areas based on the Government of Bangladesh’s priority areas: (a) Migration and poverty; (b) Migration and social protection issues; (c) Migration, environment, climate change and disaster management; and (d) Migration and human resource planning. The second section of the report provides an overview of the migration policy framework and importance of mainstreaming migration in the development agenda in Bangladesh.
