Their future, as much as that of all our children, is at risk. EADI therefore supports the young people and all others in their fight for climate justice.

2019/08 – Expert Group for Aid Studies (EBA); research paper; Author(s): Robert E.B. Lucas

What is known and not known about the links between migration and economic development? What is the potential of development assistance in enhancing these links? This publication by The Migration Studies Delegation (Delmi) and The Expert Group for Aid Studies (EBA), today's featured EADI member, synthesizes existing research on the links between migration and economic development. It also discusses how the role of migration in development can be considered in the design of development assistance.

Both the composition of aid and characteristics of the recipient country influence the effects of development assistance on migration and economic development.

The book is winner of the...
