MRS No. 8 - The Migration-Development Nexus: Evidence and Policy Options

The Migration Research Series (MRS) presents the findings of research projects managed by IOM’s Research Unit in Geneva, and studies prepared by IOM staff and its field offices. The series is designed to bring the results of policy-relevant migration research to the attention of a broader audience more quickly than would be possible in academic journals and books.
