Global, Key DocumentsWorld Migration Report 2010
The World Migration Report 2010 provides a tool for self-evaluation in terms of future scenarios, and demonstrates the need for a far more comprehensive approach to capacity-building for migration than has typically been adopted. The aim is not to prescribe ‘one-size-fits-all’ policies and practices, but to suggest objectives of migration management policies in each area, to stimulate thinking and provide examples of what States and other actors can do. Part A of the report focuses on identifying core capacities in key areas of migration management, raising key concepts and outlining important examples of existing practices in these areas. Part B provides an overview of migration in the world today, from both the global perspective and through six regional chapters, drawn from the most up-to-date data.

External Strategies & Policies, GlobalThe Global Approach to Migration and Mobility
The EU's "Global Approach to Migration and Mobility" (GAMM) is a broad strategy that incorporates various policy areas into one coherent policy framework, covering subjects related to foreign policy, development and migration. Such issues are also important for the Committee of the Regions as the voice of regions and cities in the European Union and whose mission is to involve regional and local authorities in the European decision-making process and thus to encourage greater participation from our fellow citizens.

External Strategies & Policies, GlobalInternational Migration and Development 2008
This policy memorandum, published by the Dutch ministry of foreign affairs, sets out the government’s migration and development policy, based on six key priorities. It is underpinned by a scientific analysis of migration and development trends, and the links between them. The analysis has shown that the relationship between migration and development is not clear cut, and that the effects of government measures are often visible only in the longer term. It can further be concluded that government policy can make a modest contribution to strengthening the positive effects of migration on development and mitigating the negative effects.

The report is a summary of six years of investigation into migration policy and practice. The Centre's findings indicate that, for migration to have its full developmental impact, the most beneficial policy change would be to reduce barriers to migration, at all levels and particularly for the poorest.

Diaspora & Remittances, External Strategies & Policies, GlobalBuilding bonds for migration and development
The surge in attention on migration and development over the past decade has tended to focus on what receiving states, international organisations and development agencies can do to enhance the contributions of migration to development. However, much less attention has been paid to the strategies being adopted by governments in countries of origin to encourage the participation of migrants in development. Such ‘diaspora engagement policies’ are the focus of this study.

External Strategies & Policies, Global, Labour Migration and Decent WorkIn search of decent work. Migrant workers' rights: A manual for trade unionists
Migration is primarily a labour issue. It concerns the movement of workers who cross borders to find employment, as well as the necessity of equal treatment, good working conditions and rights for these workers. The purpose of this manual is to guide the trade union movement's participation in shaping migration policies by promoting sound labour migration practices and reaching out to migrant workers. It aims to ensure that migration benefits the countries of origin as well as destination countries, and both migrant and non-migrant workers.

This practical orientation by GTZ is based on experience gained by German DC since 2007 in its cooperation with diaspora communities in the area of their non-profit activities in the partner countries.

External Strategies & Policies, Global, Studies & ReportsCreating value through migration
The key question for development cooperation is how the potential benefits of migration can be used for sustainable economic development and, at the same time, how its negative effects can be minimised. Up to now there has been no guidance on how migration can be systematically included as a factor. The guidelines examined in this study aim to close that gap. They present the major impacts of migration on economic development, describe how they should be viewed in the context of value chain promotion and explain the most important steps for their systematic inclusion. The aim is to contribute to enhanced, sustainable value creation.

The joint ICMPD-IOM project “Linking Emigrant Communities for More Development”, of which the main deliverable is this “Inventory of Institutional Capacities and Practices”, should be seen as a part or parcel of multiple initiatives aiming to support governments with significant emigrant communities to further develop a favourable environment and support knowledge-based policy development. Although far from exhaustive, the Inventory offers an overview of comparable information on existing institutional practices and identified challenges related to emigrant communities faced by 13 countries of origin, namely Algeria, Cape Verde, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Lebanon, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Syria and Tunisia.
