Kosovo 2014 Migration as a Force for Development

Migration as a Force for Development

Country/Territory: 
Kosovo*

The eighth Kosovo Human Development Report tackles the challenging linkages between migration and human development. The report analyses the impact of migration on demography, economy, social inclusion, education, health (-care) and public participation. The report drew attention due to three important facts:

One out of every four Kosovans currently lives and resides outside of Kosovo; Financial flows from members of the Diaspora correspond to one fifth of Kosovo’s GDP, and for the first time in Kosovo, an analysis of data on migration has been conducted from a human development perspective.

* In line with UNSCR 1244 (1999)
