Leveraging Migration for Africa: Remittances, Skills, and Investments

D. Ratha, S. Mohapatra, et al. | The World Bank, AfDB

International migration has profound implications for human welfare, and African governments have had only a limited influence on welfare outcome, for good or ill. Improved efforts to manage migration will require information on the nature and impact of migratory patterns. This book seeks to contribute toward this goal, by reviewing previous research and providing new analyses (including surveys and case studies) as well as by formulating policy recommendations that can improve the migration experience for migrants, origin countries, and destination countries.
