International migration experts gather in Stockholm for ”Social Policy and Migration in Developing Countries” Workshop in Stockholm 22-23 November 2007, Venue: Scandic Hotel, Hasselbacken, Djurgården, Stockholm

Over the past two decades, international migration has resurfaced as a prominent feature of contemporary social and economic life, as reflected in current political and academic debates in countries across the world. Much of existing research has focused on a specific flow of migration, namely from South to North, whereas the consequences of South-South migration are under-researched. The purpose of the workshop is to break new ground by linking migration with social development and social policy issues in the Global South. Assessing the relationship between migration and social policy raises several crucial questions: What impact does migration have on poverty? How applicable are the analytic frameworks for phenomena like remittances, “brain drain”, the “global care chain” or “transnationalism” to contexts of South-South migration, and what is their relevance to social policy? A key objective of this research is to increase the options available to developing countries faced with increasing migration by integrating social policy and migration debates. This workshop is the fourth in a series of workshops on Global Migration Regimes organized by the Stockholm Institute for Futures Studies. The background is the Institute’s ambition to integrate migration policy research with social policy research. The workshop is arranged by UNRISD, IOM International Organization for Migration and the Institute for Futures Studies with economic support from The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Sida.
