By exploring the link between international migration and development, the work of the Development Centre demonstrates the important gains from migration for migrants themselves, as well as for countries of origin and destination.
Public policies play a key role in maximising the benefits and minimising the costs of migration, both in countries of origin and destination. In such contexts, we explore the value of incorporating migration into development strategies while ensuring policy coherence for development.
Our work examines the relationship between migration and gender and the associated policy implications. We explore in particular the determinants of female migration, the impact of migration on women’s empowerment and their human rights, as well as gender-specific experiences of migration.
Given that South-South migration – accounting for 36% of global migration – differs from migration to OECD countries in important ways, our work seeks to help policy makers create policies that address South-South migration and are in line with comprehensive development strategies.
Our work investigates the forces and dynamics that propel people to move -- the drivers of migration. Furthermore, we focus on exploring the manifold aspects of the significant impact that migration has on development.

Current projects analyse different aspects of health workforce policy, including improving health workforce planning, dealing with geographic imbalances, and whether health workers put their skills to effective use in their jobs.
