International Migration and Development: Continuing the Dialogue: Legal and Policy Perspectives
Edited by Joseph Chamie and Luca Dall'Oglio
Following major intergovernmental events on migration and development in the past years, the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) in cooperation with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) organized a conference in New York on January 17-18, 2008, the outcome of which is this publication. This publication presents the proceedings of this conference which provided a timely opportunity for experts, researchers, policy makers, and program officials to critically review the outcomes, implications, and achievements of past intergovernmental events. In addition, it provided a candid appraisal of where the debate on international migration and development is likely to be heading. With participants from Permanent Missions to the United Nations, academia, researchers, media, policymakers, and practitioners, the broad diversity of participants with different perspectives and interests provided valuable interactions, offering insights into policy and legal implications as well as appropriate policy measures.
