Migration Policy Practice 8(3): September – October 2018


Written by Marta Foresti, Fiona Samuels, Jessica Hagen-Zanker, Katy Long


Despite increasing recognition of the impact of global migration on development, less attention has been paid to how migration is incorporated into plans for meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In this special issue of Migration Policy Practice, a series of articles explores the relationship between migration and different development areas and how these relationships affect the delivery of the SDGs. 

It draws on a series of twelve policy briefings by ODI that analyse the interrelationships between migration and key development areas incluing poverty, decent work, urbanisation, gender, education, health, social protection, water and sanitation, energy, citizenship, technology and climate change.

Each article looks at a specific area in which migration intersects with development, and sets out the case for including migration in planning for the SDGs.
