International migration provides some of the biggest opportunities for economic growth poverty reduction and shared prosperity. As this fact has become clearer over time, academic research on various development aspects has gained momentum. Along the way, our annual Migration and Development conference, co-sponsored by the World Bank (WB) and the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), obtained a more central place. The conference was initiated in 2008 and the sixth meeting was held earlier this year in Morocco.
If you're interested in seeing the very forefront of research in this area, don’t miss the 2014 conference. It will be held at University of Oxford on June 30–July 1 and hosted by the International Migration Institute of Oxford. Full-paper submissions are due on January 5th and must be sent to [email protected].
This year's keynote speakers are among the leading scholars of migration research: Philippe Fargues (European University Institute), David McKenzie (World Bank) and Giovanni Peri (UC Davis)
The organizing committee consists of Cyrille Bellier (AFD), Michael Clemens (CGD), Hein de Haas (IMI Oxford), Çağlar Özden (World Bank), Chris Parsons (IMI Oxford), Hillel Rapoport (Paris School of Economics)
