As I had mentioned in my blog on December 7, we at the Bank are working on a proposal to create an open knowledge platform on migration and global development. The proposed knowledge platform will:
- provide an open platform for debate and discussion; it will include divergent views, but with strong emphasis on rigor, peer review and quality control
- act as a knowledge broker
- attract researchers and practitioners from different disciplines
- deliver a menu of policy options on migration
We asked Professor Jagdish Bhagwati for his thoughts on the knowledge platform. He likes it! He kindly agreed to record a video presentation for us (you can view it here).
Thank you Professor Bhagwati!
